The Junior Grapplers

PRO WRESTLING TRAINING & PERFORMING FOR KIDS!

PPW’s Junior Grapplers program is America’s only pro wrestling training program for kids! 

This amazing program provides safe pro wrestling training from experienced and passionate coaches. After enough experience in training training, students have an opportunity to perform at live events all across the state of Michigan.  Jr Grapplers is a great program to make friends while achieving physical fitness, building confidence, establishing leadership qualities, and learning the value of teamwork. Many of our students train year round and have grown by leaps and bounds as performers in the ring and as young people outside of the ring.

Program Outline: Students typically train 2-3 nights per week in sessions that last a total of 6 to 8 weeks. During these sessions students learn in ring techniques while building a foundation of physical fitness, discipline, safety, & self-confidence. After completing one full 6-8 week sessions, students earn an opportunity to perform a live pro wrestling match at a Pure Pro Wrestling event in front of fans, friends, and family. Students who stay in the program continue to learn advanced techniques, develop their characters, and perform regularly on live events & our JR. Grappler TV show.
