Episode #9 - Jake Shannon: Catch Wrestling and Entrepreneurship

Leave it to Sievers

Jake Shannon and I talked about it all, because this man has many avenues to talk about. People who grapple know him as the man who has studied the most about Catch Wrestling straight from Karl Gotch and Billy Robinson and doing his best to keep it pure and true to its roots.  Unconventional Athletes know him as the man who brought the Steel Mace to America in a time when kettle bells were the big movement. If you love books... Well you can find some of his books he has written. From Economics to catch wrestling, to politics. The shorter list is, What does this man not do?  Biggest take away for me was for him entrepreneurship is less risky than a single job.. That stuck with me , because I never really thought about it in a sense of having many fires going and knowing when to tend to each fire when necessary. If all you have is one fire and it goes out, What do you do? He also mentioned once you become familiar with entrepreneurship, you learn how to make money anywhere. There is a good percentage of us that fall into that 1 secure job to give us our income for 40+ years. But the way Jake thinks is amazing with all of his previous and current endeavors. It really opened my eyes to much more in this world and what you can do to enjoy the things you do and live the life you wanted making money with the things you love. This episode was great to pick his brain and get to know this man with many ventures... After this episode check out what he is doing currently with some of his business' that I highly recommend. Also if your looking for other Catch Wrestlers, he named about 10+ in this episode and has connections pretty much anywhere to train and learn the Old School Way.

He is very capable of coaching you off the mats with business, life and money. Books worth recognizing that Jake has written: Catch Wrestling Books: Say uncle and Physical Chess Anomaly: Revolutionary Knowledge In Everyday Life ENDonomics: Default, Deflation, Derivatives & the End of the United States As We Know It

Airey Bros. Radio Episode 57 Jake Shannon

Airey Bros. Radio

Jake Shannon Founder of Scientific Wrestling, author and renowned Catch as Catch Can Wrestling historian joins us for episode 57 of Airey Bros. Radio! Catch Wrestling is a classical hybrid grappling style and combat sport. It was developed by J. G. Chambers in Britain circa 1870. It was popularized by wrestlers of travelling funfairs who developed their own submission holds, or "hooks", into their wrestling to increase their effectiveness against their opponents. Catch wrestling derives from various different international styles of wrestling from around the world. The training of some modern submission wrestlers, professional wrestlers and mixed martial artists is founded in catch wrestling.Scientific Wrestling was established in 2003 as an independent association of grappling and Catch Wrestling practitioners, historians, and enthusiasts.Some of the all time greats in the sport of wrestling including Olympic champions, Mixed Martial Arts champions, and World-Record Holders, as well as grassroots level practitioners and enthusiasts, have shared and supported Jake's vision for the sport of catch-as-catch-can.Stay Connected https://www.scientificwrestling.com/ https://www.instagram.com/anomalist/?hl=en https://www.instagram.com/ScientificWrestling/?hl=en https://www.instagram.com/MaceYoga1/?hl=en https://vimeo.com/ondemand/macebell/229926360 https://join.robinhood.com/jakes2992https://www.instagram.com/MaceYoga1/?hl=en https://vimeo.com/ondemand/macebell/229926360 https://join.robinhood.com/jakes2992Airey Bros. https://www.instagram.com/aireybros/?hl=en https://www.instagram.com/blacksheependurance/?hl=enCheck out Mount Hagen Instant Coffee for a great cup a coffee in the time it take to boil waterhttps://www.instagram.com/mount_hagen_kaffee/?hl=en https://www.mounthagen.de/Go to https://altaandina.com/ and pick up something for your friends and loved ones, that will last a lifetime.

The Underground History of Catch Wrestling, MMA & Sakuraba With Jake Shannon

The Sonny Brown Breakdown

I talk to Jake Shannon who is the founder of Scientific Wrestling and The King of Catch Wrestling Tournaments. We discuss how the history of submission grappling can trace its roots back to bored English miners who loved to gamble, how Japanese MMA emerged out of the theatrical and entertainment-driven world of professional Wrestling. The moment a quirky, professional wrestler bested the most famous grappling dynasty in all of fight sports and how that professional wrestling training helped him do it and could still even be used today in your own training practice.  Jake has also authored the best selling book 'Say, Uncle!: Catch-As-Catch-Can Wrestling and the Roots of Ultimate Fighting, Pro-Wrestling, & Modern Grappling' and ghostwrote Billy Robinson's memoir titled 'Physical Chess: My Life in Catch-As-Catch-Can Wrestling" and was also the assistant coach to Billy Robinson, 2007 - 2014 and now has two instructions out on BJJ Fanatics covering catch wrestling submissions and takedowns.
