Jake is the main organizer of an event which marks another step in the revival of catch-as-catch-can wrestling, the King of Catch Wrestling Tournament.
This tournament takes place Saturday, May 19, at Stable Jiu Jitsu, 175 N. Cawston Ave., Suite 130A, in Hemet, California 92545.
At this event, you can win by submission or pin, with a pin count of three. All submissions are legal, all matches are best two out of three falls with a 12-minute time limit per fall, there are no points, and all striking, biting, eye-gouging, and hair-pulling are illegal. There are five weight classes. In the event of a draw during a match, a replay occurs. If there is a second draw, both wrestlers are eliminated.
Men and women from all styles of wrestling, grappling, martial arts, and combat sports are encouraged to compete.
We spoke with Jake Shannon by phone Monday night about the King of Catch Wrestling Tournament and the rebirth of this sport. We discussed the many catch wrestling tournaments and seminars scheduled for the rest of this year, as well as previous events. We also discussed some of the history of catch wrestling and the influence of people like the late Karl Gotch, Billy Robinson, Roy Wood, Billy Riley, Kazushi Sakuraba, and many more.
Catch is back, and the King of Catch Wrestling Tournament will help the sport grow and reclaim its rightful place in the combat sports world.
