Remembering Coach Dick Cardinal, RIP

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.
