The American Linage of Catch Wrestling Has a New Name!

EASLEY, S.C. – Exciting things are happening as Jon Strickland, head coach and Catch-as-Catch-Can (CACC) Hooker,  is revamping his at home wrestling program, now called American Hook Wrestling.  

“This is an exciting time,” said Strickland. “There is so much that I want to be able to present to my students, but I was hindered by aspects that were just out of my control. All that has changed.”

A new website, new camera equipment and organizational changes within the company are just some of the changes Strickland has implemented to make his company run more smoothly.

“I’m a wrestler, not a business man,” he said. “And like most other wrestlers I know, I get so wrapped up in the sport itself, things like updating the website, editing new videos and sending out progress reports ended up sitting on the back burner. But not anymore.”

With American Hook Wrestling, Strickland has brought together a team of professionals to take care of the business side of things so all he has to do is focus on the wrestling.

“It’s what I should have done from the beginning,” said Strickland, “I think I was trying to take on too much all on my own.” will be launched Spring 2016 and will feature a host of new material including:

  • Hi Def videos posted twice weekly
  • Monthly podcasts
  • Photo galleries
  • Pro Shop
  • Seminar and private lesson info
  • Monthly and yearly membership options
  • Standardized testing and certification programs for all levels of wrestlers
And much more!

American Hook Wrestling will also honor and pro-rate all prior memberships and certifications issued through The Billy Wicks Foundation.

“I’m looking forward to this new chapter in my wrestling life,” said Strickland. “American Hook Wrestling is going to be a great program – I can’t wait to get started.”
