You may be here because you've heard first-hand stories of the efficiency and ruthlessness of Catch Wrestling. You may have seen my multi-page feature in Black Belt Magazine, or read that Black Belt Magazine honored me as one of the world's top-20 street fighters. You may have seen my state-of-the-art strength and conditioning ideas written about in American Health and Fitness Magazine. You may have read a review of my seminal submission grappling series, The Lost Art of Hooking. Or, you may be one of the countless fighters and grapplers who has turned to me to learn a complete and fully integrated fighting system — one that, when properly mastered, will not only turn you into a dominant all-around fighter, but will in fact transform you into the kind of person who feels confident and at ease in just about any surroundings.

 

 

 

 

Regardless of your reason for visiting, you've come to the right place. And here's why: Tony Cecchine's American Catch Wrestling — while adaptable to sport competition — is first and foremost reality based. True, I've trained men and women who have fought and won in such events as UFC, Pancrase, NAGA, IFC, and the like. But more importantly, my teachings have helped change (and in some cases even save) lives. Because in the world outside the ring or cage, there is no tapping out — and people who train with the availability of a ready concession in mind will be unprepared for the potentially more brutal reality of the streets.

AMATEUR ATHLETES

We routinely train amateur athletes in such sports as MMA, boxing, wrestling, track and field, powerlifting, and more. 

PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES

We specialize in the combat sport athlete. Look for us in events such as the UFC and other MMA combat arenas. 

We have special training opportunities to help develop your striking, defense, footwork, and groundfighting skills, as well as world class conditioning.

We have trained local, regional, national, international, and world champions. Be it NAGA or the UFC or anything in between, I've trained men and women for the competitive mat, ring, and cage. See why such luminaries as Eric Paulsen, Josh Barnett, Jason Godsey, Shonie Carter, and many others recommend training with Tony Cecchine, and be assured that you will learn a complete and devastating fighting style from top to bottom, and feet to the ground, and be in the finest shape of your life.
