Willpower Wrestling Club has been training champions and supporting world class athletes and coaches since 2011

And we’ve done it training out of the back of boxing gyms, fully funded by parents and athletes.

This is because there is little public infrastructure in Brooklyn to support the sport of wrestling. Aspiring athletes pay exorbitant facility fees to train while world class wrestlers have little opportunity to make a living sharing their experience with people.

We are now raising money for a home of our own where world class athletes can make a living sharing their knowledge with the next generation of world class wrestlers.
