I have done my very best to vet as many of the sources of catch-as-catch-can and I have been very fortunate to call men like Karl Gotch, Billy Robinson, Dick Cardinal, Yoshiaki Fujiwara, and Josh Barnett friends, and more often than not, mentors.

I've been fortunate to train with truly amazing athletes like Brandon Ruiz, Wade Schalles, Frank Shamrock, and many others. I survived cancer as a teenager and consider every day a blessing and I am filled with gratitude to work with many men that also happen to be personal heroes.

Scientific Wrestling is the culmination of my efforts to record and share my journey in Catch-As-Catch-Can wrestling. I hope you enjoy!

-Jake Shannon
