Benefits Of Membership
Learn from the Best
Nick started the wrestling academy industry in 1999, and since then has helped over 3,000 athletes earn state medals and over 700 earn state titles. In fact, in 2019 a whopping 24% of the state finalist's matches at Missouri’s high school state tournament had a Purler Wrestling Academy student in them. These wrestlers trained actively in Purler Wrestling Academy’s rooms the entire season before. Countless others trained in the PWA system as kids leading up to their high school careers. Missouri has 4 classes, meaning there were a lot of PWA students making the finals! A full 14% of Missouri’s state champions were in PWA’s off-season training program the prior spring and summer. Many other PWA members were state medalists.

It’s Also in the Head
Drills and physical training are important, but we train you on the mental side of wrestling as well. With nearly 40 years of coaching experience to share, there is always something to learn from Nick. As a member of 3 NCAA Championship teams, and a 4X starter and All-American for the Oklahoma State Cowboys, Nick knows a lot of your success comes from the shoulders up.
Our basic series is recommended for wrestlers with zero to three years of experience. Many of the skills and ideas shared on our basics series are areas not covered in many wrestling programs.
Phase 1 is the sport of wrestling defined, explained, and taught. Many feel that phase 1 is the finest wrestling product ever produced for the sport of wrestling.
Phase 2 takes you to the “next tier” of wrestling techniques that you will need to know and understand since the more advanced wrestlers will have a somewhat different set of common positions.
Phase 3 rounds out of 4 step training course by building upon the key areas of hand fighting, scrambling, tricks of the trade, and advanced finishes.
Our Students Excel!
I took a high school team from 30th to top ten by sending the core group to Purler and bringing Purler into our room. On a personal level, Nick and Tony took my sons from okay Colorado wrestlers to new heights. My youngest son, Colton, will graduate this May as the pound for pound best high school wrestler in the country, he also won a world championship with the Purler go behind, “the easiest two points in wrestling”. Thank you Nick!
Rick Schultz H.S. Wrestling Coach from Colorado. His son, Cohl, is a World Jr. Champion
Nick was a huge part of my development as a high school wrestler. He didn't just help me win state championships, he helped me become a nationally known recruit that was ready to win at the Division I level. I will always appreciate what Nick did for me as a wrestler from both a training and mentor perspective.
Alex Clemsen Associate Head Coach, Univ. of Missouri Wrestling
Purler Wrestling was the foundation to my wrestling that makes me successful today. I learned so much core technique there that has helped me to become the dominant wrestler that I am. Through repetition and a tough practice room, I was able to compete at the highest level and that skill has stayed with me into college. Purler wrestling was the best thing for my youth career.
Daniel Lewis 3 Time NCAA All-American
I wrestled for Nick for almost 9 years. Purler wrestling taught me proper technique, how to drill at a high level and gave me all the tools I needed to be successful in the sport. I was fortunate to grow up under such a great system. There is no better place to wrestle.
Drake Houdashelt NCAA Division 1 Champion
I started going to Purler my first year wrestling when I was 10 years old and the technique and training habits I learned there carried me all the way through the end of my college career. The best part of Purler Wrestling is that it gives wrestlers the technique and know how to allow them to train the right way, and reach their goals.
Keith Surber NCAA Div II All American & National Champ
This year, our team won its first League Title in nearly 50 years and one of our wrestlers became our school's first CIF Champion since 1965 and our first State Qualifier since 1975! The impact of Purler Camps are obvious just from looking at our roster—all of the wrestlers that went to Purler cracked the Varsity Lineup, regardless of their grade. We are looking forward to taking a full lineup back to Purler Camp this summer!
