Required Seminar: Pro Wrestling Etiquette | Monday, November 28th @ 7PM
Although etiquette isn’t the most exciting subject for a seminar, it is one of the most important seminars a student can take. All the talent in the world cannot save you if you do not understand proper pro wrestling etiquette. Your reputation, career, and relationships can be made or broken long before you even step foot in the ring. Join Coach XJ in a 1 hour VIRTUAL SEMINAR. The total fee is only $10 and is a requirement of the PPW curriculum. Students who cannot attend may access this seminar at their leisure. A short quiz will be given at the end of the seminar. Answers must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org | Subject: Etiquette Quiz. Be sure to include your name as Coach may not recognize emails. What you learn in this seminar will apply to your time in PPW & beyond.
New Curriculum Rollout Scheduled for January 1
PPW’s Coaching Staff is proud to implement a new curriculum designed to enhance the education of every student in PPW’s training program. This comprehensive program has a four tier system that clearly defines the techniques and expectations a student should be on the path to becoming a professional wrestler. By the time our students complete all four tiers, they’ll be “show ready” with real experience and a resume in hand. If our students should choose to chase a career, they will be ready to tackle the professional world w/ confidence and a true understanding of the business. This new curriculum puts a focus on the following fundamental areas: Bumps & Rolls, Ropework, Ring Positioning, Timing & Footwork, Grappling, Pins, Striking, Takedowns, Takeovers, Slams, & Throws, Match & Character Development, Referee Training, Body: Conditioning, Cardio, Physique, & Business Development. The curriculum will also boast several mandatory seminars that are essential for development.
Friday Night Fights
Welcome to the brand new revisioning of Friday Night Fights! Starting in January, Friday sessions will be transformed to a show like atmosphere and YouTube Recording complete with constructive constructive criticism and character building advice from Coaches Road Rash & Mr. One Night Only. The purpose of these Friday nights is to get Level 3 & 4 Students ready to perform on live events in front of a real crowd. Level 1 & 2 Students may attend as spectators, but may not participate in matches.
Event Spots Being Cut for Time
Before the explosion of our school, PPW rarely had cards that lasted more than 90 minutes. Some of our events are now 3 to 4 hours long. Upcoming events will have a new formatting w/ a limited number of Junior & Adult Student spots available on the card. With that being said, PPW Coaches expect HEALTHY competition for these spots. These limited spots will be awarded to students who meet show standard, who attend classes a minimum of twice a week, who exhibit a good attitude and strong work ethic and who take the craft seriously. These spots will be earned with consistent hard work, not kissing butt or doing favors. Coaches from every class will be reporting student conduct and performance evaluations to Coach XJ weekly. Only our hardest working and consistent students will earn these spots.
