No Holds Barred: Billy Robinson and Jake Shannon at East Coast Certified Catch Wrestler Training Camp
They were the lead instructors at the East Coast Certified Catch Wrestler Training Camp 2013, which was held June 15-16 in Englishtown, New Jersey.
We spoke with both Billy Robinson and Jake Shannon right at the conclusion of this camp on Sunday.
"I'm trying to open the minds of people about how good catch-as-catch-can wrestling is," said Billy Robinson in this interview.
"It's superior to all other forms of grappling arts."
But their methods were not simply to show people the moves and holds of catch wrestling.
"My coach, Billy Riley from Wigan, and myself and Billy Joyce and all the old great timers, they tried to teach you how to learn how to learn. We want to teach people to learn how to learn catch."
We also discussed with both Billy Robinson and Jake Shannon why catch died out, why it is now being revived, what it is doing and must continue to do to become popular again, upcoming catch wrestling events, and much, much more.
Some photos from this camp can be seen on the No Holds Barred blog here.
