Scientific Wrestling Digital Library

Would you be interested in all of the Scientific Wrestling books (over 3,050 pages) in DIGITAL form?

Jake Shannon has compiled classics from his private Western Martial Arts library, along with other original items he has uncovered, PLUS several exclusive interviews; all the hard, monotonous leg-work has been done for you.

"I purchased your digital library, which is a steal considering the value of the materials in it. Thanks for all the work you have done to put those materials together!"
- Isamu Horiuchi

Realize that the money paid for the original antique content in all of these volumes literally amounts to a small fortune.

This is well over 3,050 pages of the best material on Western martial arts around and I am thinking of selling it for only $79.95 (if you were to buy them in book form "a la carte" it would cost $370 PLUS shipping and handling. This way you will save over $290!!!).

It has cost me over $10,000 and taken YEARS to collect the original antique vintage tomes and now you can get the priceless wisdom contain within for just 127 bucks!

Anyway as I mentioned to the members at, I am a bit on the fence about doing this (because of what I've gone through in the past with piracy and theft already) but I will make them available like this for a little while here.

This is my way of giving a sincere thank you to everyone that has helped us achieve what we have so far!

NOTE: Due to the sheer size of the file (a whopping 1.8 GB of info, and that is a zipped file!!) our internet host server keeps crashing! All files must be sent on a data DVD (it is THAT much info)!
