More About Coach Wes

I have over seven years experience coaching high school wrestling at a State level. Three years were at Tampa Preparatory School, where I was able to help bring multiple wrestlers to State medals. I have three years, and am currently at, Huntington Beach High School, where I have helped to turn around an almost non existent wrestling program and have already brought several wrestlers to CIF, Masters, and State. I have also built a girls wrestling program starting this year and brought two girls to Masters and one to State. I have over three years experience coaching kids, ages 4 through 12, and adults in wrestling and Jiu Jitsu at Hypermodern Jiu Jitsu and for Activision-Blizzard. I have also worked with several strength and conditioning coaches and nutritionists at East Coast West Coast Strength and Conditioning and with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tampa Bay Rays. I also spent a small amount of time with the Boston University Wrestling program and several other college and national teams.

I started wrestling when I was 11 with much success all the way through high school. I earned two State medals for placing and then a State Championship all at the 160 pound weight class. I have multiple gold medals at Durant, Brandon, and Gulf tournaments, as well as gold medals at Jesuit and Berkeley tournaments. My high school career record was 126 and 22. I wrestled for Andy Bricker and then continued on to coach for him. I also have competed in Jiu Jitsu for three years where I have multiple medals at Pan-Ams, several gold medals for Jiu Jitsu World League and Abu Dhabi championships, a gold medal for BJJ breakdown, and gold medal for jiujitsu.net, and many other first place finishes in my weight class and first place absolute finishes at other tournaments and invitationals.

The session will always be tailored and customized to the level of the client, and what the client is hoping to achieve out of private sessions. This often depends on age, experience, and season, as clients will be looking for different things in or out of the typical Winter high school wrestling season. A typical session usually runs around an hour or a little bit longer. It starts with a 10-15 minute warm-up consisting of body motion drills, stance and motion, hand-fighting, and ballistic stretching. After that we normally go into 10 minutes of review drilling for whatever techniques or concepts the client wants or needs to work on. Next is 15 minutes of new technique or adding on to technique. After technique is live wrestling, or high intensity drilling. Depending on what the client is looking for, we can also add in a workout or some cardio as well. Finally there is always a 5 minute cool down and static stretch. I have worked with and have access to several professional nutritionists who work with the World's Strongest Man and other strongmen as well as with professional boxers in managing weight, so I can also set time to figure out a nutrition plan for the client if that's wanted as well.

Client Reviews

Can teach whatever you need with a high level of detail. I had him work with my 13 an 11 year old to develop basic skills for changing levels, hand fighting, tie-ups to a setup, working to a base, the list goes on and on. He teaches proper technique in scramble situations, how to initiate an offense and use your defense as an offense. He will drill concepts until you get it right, then do it some more. Every situation drilled has a chain wrestling element that broadens students learning and situational awareness. Practice pace with Wes is on point and moves with a purpose that keeps the student engaged. He provides mindset concepts and pre-match warm-up routines before competitions. Make him your weekly coach.

Was excellent. Very detailed and productive. Money well spent. Looking forward to a more sessions with coach Wes.

Awesome Coach and our son Jeremiah was glad that he learned different wrestling techniques during their 1-on-1 training. Looking forward for our son to have additional training with Coach Wes!
