5) PINISHER Training Camp UK recap

Here's a brief recap by our man in the UK Martin "Oz" Austwick:

"It was an amazing day with Wade pushing everyone just a little harder than they wanted, and all with his usual twinkle in his eye. He likes to build wrestling from the end result back towards the start, so we started with an entire day of groundwork. We covered the chin-pick-twist, the back hook, the half nelson, the crooked head scissors, the DWL and a few other nasty arm subs. We looked at a few techniques that flow naturally from a sit-out, form both sides of the story. And then we moved on to identifying what is "on" and what isn't. With partners deliberately trying to sabotage moves.

Wade is an amazing coach, with a real eye for detail, and a real sense of humour when he teaches. His ability to break down basic bio-mechanics into simple, easy to understand concepts is second to none, and explains why he is the most successful pinning wrestler of all time. His ability to tailor what he is doing to each individual person, and to demonstrate each and every variation of what he is talking about is what sets him apart as a coach.

That man knows more ways to hurt you than I thought possible. Really looking forward to day 2, here's hoping I survive!"




BIG TRAINING CAMP ANNOUNCEMENT!!! Also, I am excited to announce that our 2016 Scientific Wrestling Training Camps will feature BOTH Wade "THE PINISHER" Schalles and Josh "WARMASTER" Barnett!!
