For close to a decade, Brian competed as a top Nationally-Ranked Wrestler, where he competed 4x's at the NCAA Division III National Championships, and was invited to wrestle at the Northwestern Midlands. Brian wrestled in duals against Northwestern & University of Illinois (Mike Poeta & Mike Boyd) Tournament matches against competition from Harvard, Iowa State, and University of Iowa's, Mark Perry.

While at Augustana College, Coach Pat Miletich brought his fight team into the Augustana College Wrestling room. Brian wrestled with Former UFC Champion Matt Hughes, Former UFC Champion Robbie Lawler and Former UFC Champion Tim Silvia. Two UFC Championship Belts were won that year and brought back to the Augustana Wrestling Room.

While competing and qualifying for the 3x's at the Illinois State Championships and 4x's at the Div III NCAA National Championships. Brian was unable to achieve his goal of becoming an All-American. At the highest level when it came down to the matches that mattered to place, something seemed to happen, leaving Brian feeling disappointed at the end of the season.

My system is the difference.

Let me ask you a question: If you were doing everything right and then found out it was wrong, how soon would you want to know?

Here is the deal, most coaches only focus on Level 1 Physical Training.
I'm different in that I challenge the athletes Level 2 Mental Training & Level 3 Spiritual Training.

We have created a colored wrist band system of promotion, reward, recognition and acknowledgement.

If this resonates with you and you now want to be trained at the highest level my recommendation is to message me.
Go ahead and message me, I'm looking forward to it.
