This isn’t like those other online training sites out there.
On this site you are about to discover a proven curriculum of battle-tested techniques and strategies from one of the greatest coaches to ever step on the mat…
But with knowledge comes responsibility, and this information should be handled with extreme care.
Ok, so let’s get to it…
Hi, my name is Jake Shannon…
And over the next few minutes, I am going to reveal a whole new set of grappling tools that you can pull from at all times to take your ground game to the next level…
As “crazy” as that might sound, it is VERY true. So make sure you pay close attention.
Here’s the deal…
Catch wrestling, also known as “Catch-As-Catch-Can” — has never been a fascination for me.
It’s been an obsession.
For years I had sought out Catch-As-Catch-Can wrestling greats — including Karl Gotch and Billy Robinson — and picked the brains of these high-level practitioners…
Working dog-bone hard for every crumb and morsel of knowledge I could glean from them as I desperately figured out how I could help resurrect the world’s lost art of grappling and…
“One Of The Toughest And Most Brutally Effective Styles Ever Imagined”…
And from the very beginning our mission has been to bring Catch-As-Catch-Can wrestling back to the front lines of submission grappling…
Reviving these lost techniques and forgotten heroes through our crusade to ignite a revolution in modern grappling — based on the pursuit of traditional Catch-As-Catch-Can wrestling, training, AND competition!
I am proud to have befriended a number of legends throughout my journey and it was through friend and former UFC Heavyweight Champion “The Warmaster” Josh Barnett that I had the fortuitous opportunity to meet his coach and legendary Wigan-trained Catch-As-Catch-Can wrestler Billy Robinson.
Now Josh has proven himself time and again against the world’s toughest competition.
He has stood at the very top of the MMA and grappling food chain on several occasions and is also a former King of Pancrase and Metamoris Heavyweight Champion.
Josh has routinely credited his competitive success to his tutelage under Coach Billy and one of his most impressive feats was when he was able to tap BJJ legend and multiple-time world champion Dean Lister — who hadn’t been submitted for over 15 years — with the vicious “Scarf Hold” chest choke technique after almost twenty minutes of gruelling action.
An excruciatingly painful pinning position used extensively in catch wrestling and not usually a position known for submission options within Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
It was a big victory for Catch Wrestling.
If Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is considered the “the gentle art”, many practitioners and critics alike consider catch-as-catch-can wrestling to be…
“The Violent Art”…
In fact on the morning of March 28, 2007 — I ventured to Los Angeles International Airport to pick up Billy Robinson and begin my scholarship in “the violent art” from arguably the greatest competitive catch-as-catch-can coach of modern times.
Billy Robinson perfected his craft in the merciless art of catch wrestling at the feared and respected “Riley’s Gym” in Wigan, England where he cut his teeth under the tutelage of Billy Riley, arguably the father of modern day wrestling and a devastating “hooker” in his own right, and trained there relentlessly for over eight years.
There were myths and legends abound of accomplished wrestlers who turned up just ONCE at the renowned “Riley’s Gym” on Pyke Street and swore NEVER to return because their encounter was so torturous and gut-churning.
During his run as a professional in the 70s and into the early 80s, Billy Robinson was one of the best and highest paid pro wrestlers in the world.
And a lot of wrestlers during that time fancied themselves as “shooters”.
They might have been proficient at demonstrating holds. “Let me show you this…” or “let me show you that”…
But the real test was if they could get these devastating moves or submission holds in an actual match.
Most of these guys suffered from delusions of grandeur. They couldn’t hit those moves if their lives depended on it.
Billy was the exception by far.
He not only could demonstrate the move, he could hit them from anywhere.
After retiring from in-ring competition following a highly decorated wrestling career, Billy also became Head Coach at the UWF Snake Pit gym in Tokyo, Japan (ran by his former student Yuko Miyato) and was formerly the head grappling trainer for the Japanese shoot style wrestling promotion “Union of Wrestling Forces International” or “UWFi”.
The original UWF movement was also led by Wigan-trained catch wrestlers in the 1980s — most notably the “God of Wrestling” Karl Gotch — and would go on to influence an entire generation of Japanese fighters that would later give birth to the incredible MMA boom in Japan for much of the early to mid 2000s.
As head grappling trainer for the “UWFi” this is where Billy coached perhaps his most infamous and accomplished pupil…
“The Gracie Hunter” Kazushi Sakuraba…
The legendary “Gracie Hunter” is perhaps the most famous and respected MMA fighter of all time and is the only fighter to have single-handedly dismantled FOUR members of the famed Gracie Jiu-Jitsu family — Royler Gracie, Renzo Gracie, Ryan Gracie and Royce Gracie — with his brutally effective and systematic use of catch wrestling.
This was unbelievable at the time and grappling prodigies like Kazushi Sakuraba and Josh Barnett made incredible use of their hard-earned tactics and competitive edge as catch wrestlers to vanquish a whole slew of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu oncomers.
Drilled and honed to relentlessly avoid the pinfall, hunt for the finish, and attack from everywhere!
Well, let me tell you this…
When the day arrived that I finally got to see Billy’s catch-as-catch-can with my own eyes, it totally staggered me!
Because that’s the day I found out Wigan style catch-as-catch-can is real… this stuff is VERY real.
We began the day working on a variety of takedowns I had never seen anywhere before. These takedowns were very efficient — and most of them very painful!
And then followed an array of brutal submissions, painful pins, punishing “rides”, and more techniques that have very seldom been seen!
Not to mention a ground-breaking counter to the “double wrist lock” that I imagine both Renzo AND Royler Gracie wished they would have known before they faced Sakuraba.
As soon as I had a taste of this grisly old-timer’s “merciless” grappling style, I was addicted.
I had spent copious hours learning with the likes of Yoshiaki “Kumicho” Fujiwara, the “God of Wrestling” Karl Gotch, and carnival wrestler Dick Cardinal, and whilst these men were wrestling legends within their own right, this time I knew I had found a man who had had incredible success not only as a practitioner, but also as a coach…
“The Most Sought-After Grappling Coach By The World’s Top MMA Fighters”…
Billy and I really hit it off and we both decided to work together.
That first day of training camp spent in the wrestling room at Santa Monica High School was the first of some 560+ hours that I would be lucky enough to spend under Billy Robinson’s watchful eye — learning both the art and science of real catch-as-catch-can wrestling.
Truthfully there was SO MUCH information during that first day of training camp that we captured over 7 hours of footage on our handheld video cameras.
During our meetings and training camps I probably wrote over a hundred pages of notes.
Billy was rambling off killer concepts and tactics so fast, I thought my hand was going to break as I scribbled them down at lightning speeds.
I was like a mad scientist or something …scribbling down pages of notes all the while trying to vigorously reinvent my own game. My notebooks filled boxes and, soon, closets!
What I learned during those sessions changed my grappling forever.
As I continued to apprentice under Billy’s watchful eye (for an unprecedented 7 years no less— which very few can say) we would sit down together, go through these ideas with a fine-toothed comb, and start to develop an entirely new curriculum of proven techniques and strategies that could easily be learned and implemented under Billy’s careful eye and ruthless scrutiny.
I wanted other guys to experience what I had experienced and share what Billy had learned from a lifetime in catch-as-catch-can wrestling.
From that very first day of training camp we later spent four long years in the trenches — tirelessly perfecting the program and doing the work required — to deliver a complete system that is progressive in terms of both skill and knowledge development.
In fact during this time we helped coach hundreds of elite and aspiring grapplers, MMA fighters, and professional wrestlers in the tough sport of Catch-As-Catch-Can wrestling and laid the ground work for a serious revolution in the sport.
Our mission was to ultimately build a leadership program designed to yield an “army” of next generation Catch-As-Catch-Can coaches and competitors.
Mixed martial artists, submission grapplers, BJJ players, pro wrestlers and Catch-As-Catch-Can wrestlers of all levels that are willing to put in the GRIND and…
“Learn These Real And Legitimate Catch Wrestling Techniques To Continue The Sport Of Catch-As-Catch-Can!”…
A “fellowship” that are a cut above the rest — an elite battalion of grapplers belligerently prepared to invade and occupy grappling tournaments, MMA promotions, and pro wrestling events across the country.
So, after dedicating years to perfecting our curriculum, I want to offer you an opportunity for a real “crash course” in these battle-tested strategies from the greatest coach to ever step on the mat.
You see what most people don’t know is that the great Japanese Judo champion Mitsuyo “Count Koma” Maeda — the man credited for training the patriarch of the Gracie family Carlos Gracie Sr. in Kano Jiu-Jitsu — perfected and refined his system throughout his travels by competing in Catch-As-Catch-Can tournaments across the world.
Along with fellow judoka Maeda, and himself likewise considered one of the greatest judoka of all time, Masahiko Kimura also fought and trained alongside catch wrestlers whilst working professional wrestling tours across Japan and Brazil.
Masahiko Kimura even defeated Hélio Gracie, the younger brother of Carlos Gracie Sr. (and also widely considered one of the best BJJ practitioners to ever live), during an intense challenge match in 1950s Brazil — breaking his arm with the infamous “double wrist lock”.
As a tribute to Kimura’s victory and the infamous “double wrist lock” used to defeat Hélio — the hold is now formally known as the “Kimura” within Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and across mixed martial arts today.
When, as the legend goes, Masahiko Kimura learned it from legendary catch wrestler Karl Gotch…
…who learned it from Coach Billy Riley at “Riley’s Gym” in Wigan.
Catch-As-Catch-Can wrestlers were TWISTING up their opponents like balloon animals DECADES before Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was even a twinkle in Carlos or Hélio Gracie’s eye.
Here’s the other thing… right now almost everybody is coming into combat sports through the traditional Japanese style of learning and grading system — complete with coloured belts, rankings, and graduation.
But first, as Billy Robinson was so fond of saying…
“You Must Learn How To Learn”…
Everybody reacts differently.
Everybody’s reflex system is different.
Some people are very strong. Some are very fast.
It is “physical chess”.
And you’ve got to learn how to make ANY move or ANY position work against anybody.
Once you get that — and once your coach has drilled it into your mind how you can learn — you never stop learning.
Even during his days at the famed “Riley’s Gym” in Wigan when Billy won the British, European, and World championships — his coach Billy Riley never congratulated him.
Billy Riley — himself arguably one of the greatest, and most dangerous, catch wrestlers of all time — proclaimed he was simply there to teach you what you’re doing wrong.
What you’re doing right… you don’t need help with.
Once you start to think you’re good, once you start to think you’re the best, you stop learning.
If the old-timers saw you do something wrong — they would pull you aside, explain to you, show you, and get you back on the mat with a different sparring partner and make you do it again.
In fact Billy mentioned he used to have frequent night terrors — waking up in the dead of night from the sound of his former coach screaming…
“Do It Again! Do It Again!”…
But let me be clear…
Catch-As-Catch-Can wrestling is evidently not something that you can just cruise through the ranks towards a “black belt” (or any other belt rank, for that matter)…
And this can cause obvious concern with it’s distinct lack of checks and balances.
That’s why you should ask these other “coaches” and “instructors” to prove what they know and whom they learned from.
Ask them to prove their claims.
Ask them what athletes they have coached.
Here’s the thing that’s so great about our vision for the certification and the credentials of Scientific Wrestling and Billy Robinson.
It helps create an interest amongst all those aspiring grapplers who want to come to a seminar and earn a certificate — so we can actually teach you the old Catch-As-Catch-Can way — to learn how to learn!
Billy’s knowledge has been institutionalized into our program and will always be the basis for our curriculum…
And if you missed out on learning first-hand from legendary coach Billy Robinson — or maybe you were lucky enough to have Billy give you some pointers but you need a refresher — then you are really going to enjoy this!
You see, once I realised that a virtually unlimited number of grapplers, MMA fighters, and pro wrestlers of all levels across the world could use Coach Billy’s knowledge and strategies to improve their grappling…
I wanted to work out the best way to teach a real “crash course” for further study outside of our training camp setting and help others prepare to take their ground game to the next level…
No, I couldn’t just put this in an eBook, it wouldn’t be enough for you to learn it, use it, and get the most out of it.
So what I decided to do was take Coach Billy’s existing “Signature Series” instructional footage (“The Sport of Catch-As-Catch-Can Syllabus” DVD, “The Double Wrist Lock” DVD and the original “W.A.R. Catch Wrestling” deluxe 4-DVD course) and organize them into a chunked down, step-by-step home study system.
All THREE releases from Scientific Wrestling’s extensive “Billy Robinson Signature Series” collection have been revised and remastered into…
“The Most Comprehensive Catch Wrestling Curriculum Available Online Today!”…

Now the entire set of instructional DVDs alone sell everyday for $235.90 in their offline “physical” format on our website.
But I wanted to make this incredible training affordable for as many people as possible.
And that’s exactly what we did, so here’s the deal…
As we’ve decided to create this new training platform and make the entire home study system available online — I’m able to offer it to you for much less.
Get lifetime access to the entire training program today for the low price of just $97.
That’s it. No “hidden charges” or outrageous shipping fees.

There are no additional monthly fees or other costs. Just $97.
That’s already a saving of $138.90 on the instructional DVDs alone. Not to mention all of the other additional bonuses that are also included.
The reason I can offer it at this low price is because the course is delivered completely online and I don’t have to fork over any shipping, storage, or manufacturing costs. So I’m passing the savings on to you.
You also won’t have to wait weeks for the mailman to show up. You can get it right this very second.
Now I hope you understand when I told you that writing a simple eBook teaching you this “crash course” wouldn’t be enough, that’s an understatement.
Because what we did was something much, much, more than that, and it has never been done before.
But there is something else that you should know…
WAR Catch Wrestling 2.0 Is NOT for everybody.
As much as we want everyone to join, there’s a certain type of grappler that’s ready to break away from the pack, and gain a competitive edge against their opposition, and that’s ready to join this elite battalion of grapplers… not just talk about it.
In fact, DO NOT join WAR Catch Wrestling 2.0 unless you meet the following criteria…
First, you must be seriously dedicated to taking your game to the next level and learning both the art and science of real catch-as-catch-can wrestling.
Secondly, you must be persistent and willing to put into action what you learn.
And thirdly, if you’re content sitting on the sidelines and not taking action. If you won’t put in the work to learn Coach Billy’s curriculum of proven techniques and strategies, then this is not for you.
Still with me? Good, and I’m glad, because WAR Catch Wrestling 2.0 is going to be one of the best investments you can make as a competitive grappler, MMA fighter, or pro wrestler!
Now, I’m super excited for you to really dig into this program and know that you will find so much value in everything we show you in these videos.

You might have witnessed the supercharged and super slick grappling style of both Kazushi Sakuraba and Kiyoshi Tamura, two of Billy’s most fervent proteges and two of the most famous and popular Japanese mixed martial artists in history.
Here’s the thing! There’s actually a method to what they’re doing. It’s not just crazy, wild wrestling.
There’s actually a “system” or a “style” — “Lancashire Catch-As-Catch-Can” — that underpins what’s going on there.
There’s truly a way to learn this — so you can be like those guys!
You see this program really isn’t about making somebody a master… because you can never truly “master” it.
And nothing will save your bacon more than the fundamentals.
When you learn basics, any time you get into trouble, the basics will get you out of it.
More so than any “state-of-the-art” guard pass or “revolutionary” back attack technique.
That’s why Billy continued to live his passion for Catch-As-Catch-Can as an instructor right up until his passing and protecting the legacy and legitimacy of catch wrestling was of the utmost importance to him.
Even after having major surgery, and his doctor telling him he shouldn’t be on his knees, he could STILL get on the mat and whoop your butt with the utmost proficiency — leaving you scratching your head wondering what the hell just happened.
Billy truly loved his students — and as one of the toughest men in pro wrestling and best legitimate grapplers through more than four decades — Billy lived and breathed catch wrestling and we hope that you will join us in continuing his legacy.
It is ours to keep going now — the right way.
The Billy Robinson way.
Thank you for your patience and continuing support. Billy was more than just a coach to me. He was a mentor and a member of my family.
Those grizzled veterans believed in our mission to keep real wrestling alive and bring it back to the front lines…
