“Life Changing”

Brian Klaus“My name is Brian Klaus. I am a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist with a background in powerlifting and wrestling. In 2005 I won the AAPF National Powerlifting Championships, setting three World Records in the process. However, while trying to exceed my World Record Squat in training, I completely ruptured the ACL in my right knee.

While in rehab I began looking for a way to maintain my strength while achieving a more complete level of fitness than what I had while powerlifting. A friend of mine had purchased several of Tony Cecchine’s DVD’s including the “Lost Art of Hooking”, and the “Lucky 13”. I began utilizing the information on the videos and eventually enrolled in Tony’s Catch Wrestling Certification Course. Training with Tony has really changed my life, I’ve seen my technique, conditioning, and agility increase every week, and I’m only getting started.

For anyone looking for the finest instruction in martial arts, wrestling, and self-defense, or if you’re interested in being in the best shape of your life, you can find no better source than Tony Cecchine.”

You’d be hard pressed to find a more thorough and complete trainer that has produced a stable of champions throughout the years, anywhere in the world. But even if your goals are a bit less lofty, there’s no substitute for quality instruction. I will be here for all of your training needs.
