Welcome to UWF-Bushido!

Holy smokes, I thought it would never happen! I never thought that this footage would be made available again. . . . keep reading
A BUSHIDO SECRET
Ted Pelc
If most BUSHIDO fans were asked the question, "In what country do you think BUSHIDO was the most popular?" I imagine most would say Japan. For many years we were far and away the most popular in ring event. The second incarnation of the U.W.F. sold out the 50,000 capacity Tokyo Dome in hours! Some might guess England. We got top ratings on Sky Sports even beating English Football. It was the number one series in the ratings. Well, they'd be wrong. Far and away BUSHIDO enjoyed it's greatest popularity in Israel! . . . keep reading
Inside UWF-Bushido!
Ted Pelc
First my congratulations and thanks to Jake Shannon for his role in bringing BUSHIDO to a North American audience after so many years. . . . keep reading
Expanded 'Meeting Mr. Robinson' Article
Jake Shannon
Gong Magazine recently asked me to write an article for the Japanese MMA scene about the recent Scientific Wrestling clinic featuring UWF coach Mr. Billy Robinson. As readers of this blog will recognize, I merely elaborated upon the blog entry made here earlier. . . . keep reading
'I'm a Wrestler!'
Ted Pelc
Thanks again, Jake, for this "labor of love"...reproducing all the fantastic matches of the UWFI for an all new North American audience. I'm enjoying them all again as much as I did the first time. . . . keep reading
UNBELIEVABLE!
Ted Pelc
I hope you all are enjoying these great matches for the first time as much as I am seeing them again every week. THE WORLD MARTIAL ARTS CHAMPIONSHIP was another historical milestone for the UWFi. Nobuhiko Takada against Koji Kitao had even more anticipation and excitement behind it than the Takada vs Berbick match. And this one delivered! . . . keep reading
The BUSHIDO Training Ethic
Ted Pelc
In the States, fighters with the greatest results move up the ladder the quickest. In Japan, the fighters who have been with the organization the longest have seniority. . . . keep reading
Bushido- The Standing Bouts
Ted Pelc
When talking about Bushido (or the U.W.F. International), being a professional wrestling company people tend to reflect on only the great wrestling which took place- obviously, this makes sense. Many do recall the great "standing bouts" (the name we gave the kick-boxing bouts, originally billed as being the U.W.F. International Stand-up Fighting Division). . . . keep reading
The Gloves are coming off!!! - Part 1
Ted Pelc
A lot of people still believe that with the introduction of the Marquess of Queensberry rules boxing was made safe and "civilized", cringing at the thought of "bareknuckle fighting". . . . keep reading
The Gloves Are Coming Off!!! - Part 2
Ted Pelc
As for the kick-boxing which took place in the UWFi, it couldn't have been closer to Muay Thai as we felt that this was and is the ultimate form of "stand-up fighting". But in our style there were more kicks than punches in most cases, we did away with the elbows and had experienced referees who knew how to stop the bout before someone got really hurt, not after they got hurt. . . . keep reading
The Gloves Are Coming Off!!! - Part 3
Ted Pelc
Yes, in many ways our style of wrestling was tougher than boxing, Pride or the UFC. The duration of most of the matches were much longer than a typical MMA style bout, and we did not have any rounds. . . . keep reading
The Gloves Are Coming Off!!! - Part 4
Ted Pelc
I have to admit, as proud as everyone involved here was with Bushido, and we do honestly believe in what we did, some of the toughest and meanest bar room brawlers I've ever run into were American style wrestlers who were really into the "show biz" while wrestling in the squared circle. I've seen it one too many times when Gary Albright and I would go to get a few beers when we were off duty at the local bars and we'd have some of the American style wrestlers join us when they happened to be in the same town. . . . keep reading

 TESTIMONIALS
Here's the BUZZ:

“Jake Shannon has single handedly resurrected one of the world’s lost arts of grappling through his ScientificWrestling.com 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

"Honest, Hardworking, Strong Character, Creative, & Energetic... Wow. Jake you're on a roll with this certification! I support you wholeheartedly my friend." - Mark Schultz, Olympic Gold Medal-winning wrestler, successful UFC competitor, 2x Freestyle Wrestling World Champion, and 3x NCAA Wrestling Champion.

"[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, YOU ARE THE VERY BEST INDIVIDUAL PERSON TO COME ALONG IN THIS GENERATION AND DO WHAT YOU HAVE DONE FOR WRESTLING, I CAN'T FIND WORDS TO EXPRESS MYSELF. MUCH RESPECT" - Billy Wicks, Catch-As-Catch-Can legend and retired law enforcement officer.

"Catch somehow ignited a fire in me that those samurai esq styles could not. I have a renewed interest in all things Western! From various Wrestling styles, sword & pole-arm combat, hand to hand combat & most importantly: History & Autodidacticism. It all started with exposure to ScientificWrestling.com. Thank you for filtering out the nonsense so those who seek the truth about Catch Wrestling can do so." - Michael Guzman

"ScientificWrestling.com is an excellent web resource, offering a large number of high quality videos... The information is top notch, especially for submission wrestling. I got a particularly good compression armlock from the welcome page alone" - Review from Fighters Review

"When I first sat down and watched Yoshiaki Fujiwara's Submission Master DVD I was blown away by it. I honestly love this DVD... Outside of the actual techniques there are some fantastic conditioning segments that present all of the latest and greatest methods for getting in shape. This is almost exactly the same stuff you've already spent your hard earned money on so that you could get the newest fitness innovations . . . except it was originally recorded before UFC 1!" - Review from Maximumg.com

"Dear Jake, What you have put together is wonderful! Very insightful. You will run a great clinic and be a success. I have never seen anything like this." - Frankie Cain (aka The Great Mephisto), Carnival Wrestler and Boxer and Wild Bull Rider

"A tremendous, spectacular text filled with fascinating material!! ...Strangler Lewis, Earl Liederman, the notes on gouging, I'm only 1/3 of the way, I've found interesting thoughts and memorabilia on each page! Thanks for this treasure & congratulations!" - Dick Cardinal, former carnival wrestler and Catch As Catch Can Wrestling Legend

"This is a very nice and impressive book, and, as the author of 16 books myself, I know how much work goes into such a project. The book will be placed in our library here at the museum, so that others can have access to it." -Mike Chapman, Executive Director of the International Wrestling Institute and Museum

"The Sport of Catch Wrestling is a unique combination of historical information, a pictorial of authentic catch wrestling techniques, and a practical workbook. Jake is to be commended for his efforts to both preseve and spread catch-as-catch-can wrestling." - Mark S. Hewitt, author of Catch Wrestling: A Wild and Wooly Look at the Early Days of Pro Wrestling in America

"Jake is Southern California's true master of catch wrestling. Merely shaking hands with this gentleman can bring about an infinity of pain!" - Bob Calhoun, co-author of The Godfather of Grappling and author of BEER, BLOOD & CORNMEAL!

"Billy Robinson is like no one I've ever trained under. He is a true master. Jake Shannon and his ScientificWrestling.com are the real deal." - Tony Altermatt, Former Texas Peace Officer, JKD instructor, Former MN State Karate Champion
Minnesota

"Jake, you are a visionary in the world of wrestling. It amazes me how good your stuff is (which I am still studying), thank you!" - Master Sidartha Lonngi, 6º Dan
Mexico

Did not see that coming!! Great stuff, have you set a date yet for the next certification? Take care," - Ali O.

"My son was able to use 1 of the techniques from the Schalles DVD in his first tourney today!!!
As he got the chicken wing and he jumped over I was thinking 'Oh Sh$t !!! he's gonna use that technique we watched last nite!' Needless to say he got the pin. Thanks!" - Bobby Delos Santos

"I just got the Complete Catch Wrestler package today. Whoa! It's a lot of information and I'm not sure where to begin. I wasn't expecting as much stuff as I received in this package. I feel very good about my order now. Thanks!" - Rob Tewis

"Thanks Jake, and I'll try to keep up with whatever project you come out with next! Your credibility is definitely SOLID; You're a stand-up guy." - Donald Pillow

"Thanks for doing great work, and thanks for reminding me the type of fighter I want to be. I'm am a big fan of pro wrestling and I forgot all about the shooters. BJJ is great, but at heart I want to be a catch wrestler." - Scott Buendia, President of Urban Warrior Incorporated
