"Hi Jake, The macebell seminar was great. I'm convinced that it's gotta be one of the greatest workout tools ever. It was very fun, and judging by how my muscles feel, an incredible workout. I want to get certified to teach this.

Glenn Chang

"Dear Jake, I had a great time at the Macebell seminar!! I never thought that you could do so much with the Macebell. I am still sore from all the different drills.

Thank you for such a powerful learning experience---my training will never be the same!

Please let me know about any other seminars or workshops!

Thank you again!" Rik Brown, RKC

"Since attending the East Coast Macebell Seminar in December, I have been working three days per week with the 10K Macebell. Although I am still working on perfecting the exercises I have to admit, this is one kickass piece of equipment. At first it was intimidating but once I got the basic mechanics down, I look forward to these workouts.

Now, I have bad shoulders (with limited motion on my left) and have had three operations on the left and one on the right. I was told by my orthopedic specialist that I will need a left shoulder replacement within 5-10 years (he told me this 2 years ago). So, I was a bit concerned that the Macebell may cause more damage than good. However, since beginning a program and including the Macebell into my workouts I have actually gained mobility and strength over what I had prior to using them. This is good news for me as I was told my mobility would never improve without the joint replacement.

The workouts can be a total body workout depending on what exercises you choose, but the main focus is on your core, shoulder girdle and forearms. If you want to improve your grip strength, this is a great tool and will leave your forearms fried. The Macebell has a real thick handle as well which only adds to the grip workout.

Thanks to Jake for making this classic piece of equipment available again, and also for the improvements he has designed to make it even better. I highly recommend the Macebell and for those who love using odd objects and doing hardcore type workouts, this is for you!"

Here's the BUZZ:

“Jake Shannon has single handedly resurrected one of the world’s lost arts of grappling through his crusade. I can’t think of anyone more enthusiastic about Catch as Catch Can Wrestling than Jake. He has breathed new life into one of the toughest styles of grappling in the world. I am thoroughly impressed by his knowledge and more than that his ability to have personally befriended CACC greats like Karl Gotch, Billy Robinson and others and how he has brought them back into the limelight so that their legacies could be shared with this generation. That took a lot of dedication and a lot of selfless effort on his part. Jake has truly brought back lost techniques and lost heroes. It is a great honor to have learned from Jake and to call him friend.” - Brandon Ruiz, FILA Grappling World Champion, NAGA Grappling World Champion, 2X Pancrase World Champion, Greco Roman Wrestling Pan Am Silver Medalist, 8 x Greco Roman & Freestyle Wrestling All-American, 2nd Degree Black Belt Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Ruiz Combat Grappling

"[Scientific Wrestling is] the most legitimate, honest website and conglomerate of people that are true fans of catch wrestling that have the right spirit for it. It's not trying be something different or trying sell something. It's trying to honor the memory and trying to keep the history alive and that is really important to me." - Neil Melanson, Head Grappling Coach for UFC legend Randy Couture and Xtreme Couture Las Vegas

"Jake Shannon and his Scientific Wrestling program has allowed me to train with the best in the world. After visiting coach Shannon and training catch as catch can for the first time in 2007, I quickly realized that I needed to learn a style that didn't take away from my collegiate wrestling and judo experience. Instead, catch allowed me to learn submissions from positions that I was already used to. I couldn't be more grateful to Jake for putting me in that crooked neck scissors a few years ago and opening my eyes to painful techniques that really work. Nothing flashy, no politics, just catch as catch can!" - Luis Ojeda, 2X King of Catch Wrestling Heavyweight Champ, Current NACWA Heavyweight Champion, Scientific Wrestling Assistant Coach (under Billy Robinson)
