Wrestling Coach/Self-Defense Instructor with Collegiate (Folkstyle) NCAA Experience and Freestyle/Greco Roman Wrestling Experience

Methodology

I teach based on the goals of the individual whether it be to succeed at the provincial/state, national level for the US or Canada or both, or to just learn the fundamental concepts of body positioning the wrestling teaches to succeed in almost every other sport, especially combat sports.

Background

I am a recent Simon Fraser University Graduate with a Bachelor's Degree in Biological Physics and am the only one to complete the program while being a Varsity NCAA Athlete on the front line-up for the Wrestling team in 2014-2018. I have over 130+ wins at the NCAA level in my 4 years at SFU and still continually train at SFU as a coach, mentor, and athlete.

Rates

Transportation Fee : £5
Rate for online lessons : £29/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £145
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £231

Details

Please provide a 24hr cancellation. Also, I typically charge $100 for 90 min private wrestling sessions so that will be offered as well. You may bring a partner of your approximate size who you can split the cost with to save money.
