The Details

The Reason Why

Japanese Wrestling and the "strong style" associated with it have always been alluring to all professional wrestlers. In recent years, with fan interest in Japanese Professional Wrestling growing around the globe, more and more wrestlers have been seeking the opportunity to train and perform in the style.

Wrestle-1 is a premiere Japanese dojo presenting top-notch events, with historic talent.

Training Assessment & Tryout

Kaz Hayashi and Sonny Onoo will visit your home dojo to evaluate your professional wrestling talent. Everything from physical agility and character/gimmick to in-ring awareness and overall performance. Tryouts will last up to 8 hours depending on location, and will determine who will be offered the opportunity to travel to Wrestle-1 dojo in Shinjuku, Japan.
