Nick started the wrestling academy industry in 1999, and since then has helped over 3,000 athletes earn state medals and over 700 earn state titles. In fact, in 2021 a whopping 23% of the state champs at Missouri’s high school state tournament trained in Purler Wrestling Academy. These wrestlers trained actively in Purler Wrestling Academy’s rooms the entire season before. Countless others trained in the PWA system as kids leading up to their high school careers. Missouri has 4 classes, meaning there were a lot of PWA students making the finals! A full 18% of Missouri’s Girls state medalists were in PWA’s off-season training program the prior spring and summer.

"Hey Nick this is Stevan Micic's father Steve. I know I've thanked you in the past but wanted to send you a note to thank you again for the impact your Foundation Wrestling Instructional DVDs have had on Stevan and me. At the age of 10 or 11 Stevan started getting serious about wrestling and came to me one day with tears in his eyes after a hard fought loss and pleaded with me to help him personally get better at wrestling. There was only one problem and that was that I nor anyone in our family had ever wrestled. He was very upset and persistent and finally I gave in and we settled on a hand shake to seal the deal. That day changed my life forever as is started on a journey of learning everything I could about wrestling. I spent hundreds and thousands of hours and dollars watching YouTube and purchasing instructional material only to find I was more confused and frustrated. I was all over the place and had more questions than answers. There were hundreds of wrestlers using hundreds of wrestling moves and techniques. I was overwhelmed! Thankfully I stumbled across the Purler Foundation Wrestling DVD series. I finally found a blueprint that I could easily understand and it cut through all the confusion and really focused our time and energy in getting better at wrestling faster. I can honestly say your system has been the primary source we have used and continue to use in building and keeping a strong wrestling foundation for Stevan.
Our basic series is recommended for wrestlers with zero to three years of experience. Many of the skills and ideas shared on our basics series are areas not covered in many wrestling programs.
Phase 1 is the sport of wrestling defined, explained, and taught. Many feel that phase 1 is the finest wrestling product ever produced for the sport of wrestling.
Phase 2 takes you to the “next tier” of wrestling techniques that you will need to know and understand since the more advanced wrestlers will have a somewhat different set of common positions.
Phase 3 rounds out our 4 step training course by building upon the key areas of hand fighting, scrambling, tricks of the trade, and advanced finishes.
Frustrated by your results? Coaches, are you in need of an organized system for training your teams? Parents, do you wish you had a way to help your own son/daughter master this complex sport? If so, then our ONLINE ACADEMY is for you!
