The Source Wrestling School is the first stepping stone for the potential stars of the Scottish Wrestling Alliance and Pro Wrestling Zero 1 Japan. It is the ONLY full-time training school in Scotland, open 7 days a week and is regarded as one of the best training schools in the UK. Even more impressive, is that the Source Wrestling School is now housed within CityGym Glasgow. Offering all trainees the opportunity at discounted gym rates as well as top class wrestling coaching.
At the training school you will also find a 16 foot show ring, available for use at every session.
As a new student you will be under excellent supervision and guidance from Head Trainer Damian O’Connor and the training team at SWA. O’Connor is a 9 year pro and has wrestled all over the UK and Ireland, has wrestled in Australia and the US and in 2010 trained with the WWE during their British tour. He holds a blackbelt with the International Budo Federation in Ring Wrestling, and is a fully certified ring instructor with the IBF. O’Connor also holds coaching insurance with Insure4sport.
Supplementing O’Connor is the 13 year English veteran and Worldwide travelled superstar, Mikey Whiplash. Mikey has wrestled against some of the biggest names in the modern wrestling, and is a regular fixture on the All-Star circuit, with over 3000 matches (and counting!) to his name. We are delighted that Whiplash will be with the School indefinitely hosting sessions every week.
Adding to an already wide array of training, will be New Japan Pro Wrestling’s own, “Prince” Fergal Devitt, who will be on hand during the year putting the best of the graduates through their paces in weekend training camps. Throughout the 14+ hours, Devitt will bring his own world-class wrestling knowledge as well as New Japan dojo training methods for a fun but intense pro-wrestling camp. Fergal is due to return April 21st 2013 for his next top class camp!
Each month, guest trainers from around Europe such as Paul Tracey, Robbie Brookside, Robbie Dynamite, Johnny Moss, Jetta, Erin Angel, Jack Gallagher and more will be on hand throughout the year to give fantastic one day seminars.
