As the prime-mover of the modern fitness mace movement I am so proud and relieved that Greg Walsh has brought to market this amazing piece of equipment for serious athletes!

Get a grip on the ONLY mace that I stand behind and endorse right here right now.
This thing is F*CKING AMAZING! Not only is this the BEST production Fitness Mace on the market, it is ALSO a gorgeous artisan mace thanks to the etching artist Heather McAllister!

For those of you that follow my other endeavors, at the beginning of last year I launched Thales Coaching to help struggling individuals and small business owners grow their businesses by 30% via proprietary business development systems. I’ve been doing business development through three Global Financial Crises now. Anyway, because I only work with the very best (e.g., all the greats that work with Scientific Wrestling), I’ve partnered with the #1 sales & marketing trainer on the planet, Grant Cardone. I only say this because I even gifted Uncle G his own custom mace!

10X Mace!
I am on a mission to get Grant Cardone on the cover of Men’s Fitness with a Macebell!!

Also, for those of you that own the hardware, here’s some software to help you get the most out of your investment!!

Greg Walsh is a renowned elite trainer and the man responsible for bringing the only mace I endorse to market.
Rik is one of my first mace students and a legend within the modern fitness mace movement. Fantastic teacher!

As I said, after years of not having a mace that I believe in, now I feel like the Macebell is back!

I really love what has been doing! When I started I developed a business model that resulted in our legendary grappling collection. BJJ Fanatics has used that same business logic from one of our tranches but BLOWN IT UP MASSIVELY! Instead of niche-ing like we did (we only wanted instructionals relevant to CACC specifically), they applied it far and wide. I am so proud of their success and to be working with them!

If you want to accelerate your CACC knowledge then, in addition to the legendary instructionals that I produced for Scientific Wrestling, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND the following titles from BJJ Fanatics:

SW Coach Sam Kressin (and 3rd degree BJJ blackbelt) shares tons of gnarly tech gleaned from his years of training with Billy Robinson at Scientific Wrestling Training Camps!
SW Coach Jesse Marez has been studying and applying the Scientific Wrestling formula since the beginning. He is a highly decorated grappler and a great coach. Get this ASAP.
SW Asst. Coach David Petrone is a true innovator, this is a MUST have.
Scientific Wrestling Asst. Coach David Petrone has made the cradle into the equivalent of the wrestler’s “guard”.

My first two, Catch Wrestling Takedowns and Catch Wrestling Submissions have gotten great reviews (thanks to SW Coach Sam Kressin for helping), check them out here:


Volume 1 covers Standing CACC and is absolutely jam-packed with takedowns and throws.


Volume 2, Catch Wrestling Submissions, picks up where Vol 1 left off, showing you how to finish the match On-Top via scores of submissions and pinning set-ups and combinations. Additionally, I cover Underneath escapes and reversals too!

My most recent instructional, The Nelson Family, is the very first comprehensive application of the Nelson hold for grappling (special thanks to SW Coach Jesse Marez for all the help)!

Josh Barnett’s CHAMPIONSHIP LEVEL CATCH WRESTLING (rounds out his original trilogy: BREAK A LEG, ATTACKING THE GUARD, & PUNISHING RIDES from Scientific Wrestling.

Josh Barnett’s impact upon keeping CACC alive cannot be overstated. The WARMASTER is perhaps the most technical and successful heavyweights to ever wave the catch-as-catch-can banner!
This is how Josh tapped the exceptionally tough Dean Lister (undefeated for 17 years until Josh tapped him with this control position)
Another brutal staple of the CACC arsenal, and they are everywhere when you know how to look!
Josh’s face says it all, the Achilles lock is FUN!!
Harry Grech is a successful athlete and instructor. He’s also one of the few people to earn the approval of Josh WARMASTER Barnett himself.
Brandon Ruiz is a World Champion grappler (and 1/2 of the Shoot Pro Wrestling Tag Team Champions) and a great friend. I’ve learned a lot from him, and so should you!
Gokor Chivichyan is one of the greatest grappling instructors of all time, in my opinion. I was able to spend 6 month at his North Hollywood dojo circa 2004 and was absolutely blown away by his prowess and technical efficiency. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Neil Melanson is great instructor, innovator, and representative of the Gokor/Lebell line of CACC.
Melanson is a master at keeping CACC techniques relevant to the broader MMA/grappling game.

Erik Paulson’s KILLER CATCH WRESTLING COMBOS is a fantastic complement to his NECKBREAKER instructional from

Erik Paulson is quite literally a human encyclopedia of martial arts and his depth of knowledge of CACC is always impressive. Check out this legend from Shooto!

Fujiwara’s SHOOT FIGHTING SUBMISSION SYSTEMS is the follow up to his EPIC SUBMISSION MASTER instructional available at

Yoshiaki KUMICHO Fujiwara is the only person that Karl Gotch personally recommended that I learn Karl’s methods from. He called him his “greatest student”.
Mr. Miyato from Japan is the only other person I know that spent as much time learning the art of coaching catch-as-catch-can directly from Billy Robinson as I did. Highly Recommended!
Kazushi Sakuraba was the inspiration for Scientific Wrestling way back in 2003!
The Legend!

Since I no longer produce instructional videos (since my time is now consumed with other things like the Scientific Wrestling Accelerator Camps, Shoot Pro Wrestling, King of Catch Wrestling, etc.), now I just refer the people to BJJ Fanatics due to the amazing job they’re doing!!!

I am proud to recommend these DVDs. I hope you pick them up (and if you do, please leave a review on the BJJ Fanatics site)! These titles are CACC specifically for grappling although martial artists and professional wrestlers will radically benefit from studying these as well.

The weekend of July 16th, 2021 gave fans and athletes one helluva pair of events! First on Friday, July 16th there was Shoot Pro Wrestling – REBIRTH! This is my vision for competitive grappling done under professional wrestling rules (i.e. pro catch wrestling).

Here’s the live feed from the event!

THEN, on Sunday in San Diego we held our open tournament, THE KING OF CATCH WRESTLING. It was 7 hours of amazing matches!

Be sure to check out our Fall schedule below and join us at an event!!!

Coach Dick Cardinal was my first legitimate CACC coach. He was also the first Head Coach for the Scientific Wrestling Coaching Coach program.

Dick Cardinal, respected American At Show catch-as-catch-can wrestler, passed away on Christmas Eve, 2020 at the age of 93.

He was a great wrestler, a great man, and a great friend. I included a lengthy interview with Coach Cardinal in my 2011 best-selling book Say Uncle! too.

My friend Mark Hewitt wrote an amazing eulogy here. Please enjoy this clip of Coach teaching keylocks from 15 years ago (he was 78 here!):

From 2007. Me, Coach Cardinal, my newborn daughter Leona, and my wife Sondra.
