Scientific WrestlingThe Fighting Library

ATTENTION: Forget everything else you think you might know about martial arts and pay very close attention to the words you are about to read. This is the most complete collection of fighting information of its kind!

“The Most COMPLETE COLLECTION Of Fighting Information Of Its Kind!”…

“Who Else Wants To Get Their Start Becoming An Expert In WESTERN Martial Arts? Learn The Facts About REAL FIGHTING That Originated In AMERICA And EUROPE From The Men That Were There!”…

Dear friend,

Forget everything else you think you might know about martial arts and pay very close attention to the words you are about to read.

If you’ve spent any amount of time in martial arts then you know it is a game of “physical chess”.

Just as important as strength and conditioning (and some say even MORE important) is knowledge. The difference between winning and losing often comes down to which player sees opportunities that his opponent doesn’t.

These days mixed martial arts and submission grappling are immensely popular. It seems like there is a new gym in every other strip mall these days – but the sad fact is that the majority of these places are teaching the same old material.

This presents an opportunity for the competitor that thinks outside the box!

Warning From Jake Shannon: Some of these techniques may now be illegal and considered “unsportsman-like”…

Jake Shannon from Scientific Wrestling has compiled out-of-print classics from his private Western Martial Arts library, along with other original items he has uncovered, PLUS several exclusive interviews! All the hard, monotonous leg-work has been DONE FOR YOU.

Realize that the money paid for the original RARE content in all of these volumes literally amounts to a small fortune.

Now that everything is said and done, what was in the hands of only an elite, privileged few (thousands upon thousands of pages of exceptional and NEARLY forgotten information) have been preserved and made available to you!

“More reviews from our happy customers”…

“Phenomenal collection!!! Jake Shannon has put together a collection of very rare books that should be part of every wrestlers Library! I have been collecting rare wrestling books for years and I know that some of the books in this collection are worth hundreds of dollars each! Better yet, some of the books in this Encyclopedia are near impossible to find at all. Fantastically put together this is by far the single best collection of rare wrestling material ever compiled and I am grateful to Jake for his exhaustive work on this project! I look forward to future volumes of The Authoritative Encyclopedia of Scientific Wrestling!!”

~ Bill Cogswell
Sombo Blackbelt

“Hey Jake, I am almost through the 4 volumes of the encyclopedia and it is a tremendous work on the history of wrestling. My favorite books are by Burns and from Milos to Londos, mostly because of Burns’ values on hard work and clean living and the latter because of the in-depth history on wrestling. I never knew much about Muldoon so it was great to see something on him because he grew up (Belfast) about a half an hour from my town. Thanks!”

~ Jeff Hackett

“The Authoritative Encyclopedia of Scientific Wrestling is an extrememly pleasant walk down the sport’s memory lane. Almost 500 pages of century old techniques that every modern day wrestler thinks he invented. It’s a must have for anyone who has spent more than one season in America’s wrestling rooms.”

~ Wade Schalles
Wrestling legend, NCAA Judo All-American, 9th Degree Black Belt and multi-time champion in Sombo, and the Guiness Book of World Records all-time leader in wrestling victories.

“I purchased your digital library, which is a steal considering the value of the materials in it. Thanks for all the work you have done to put those materials together!”

~ Isamu Horiuchi

“Jake is Southern California’s true master of catch wrestling. Merely shaking hands with this gentleman can bring about an infinity of pain!”

~ Bob Calhoun
Co-author of Gene LeBell’s autobiography ‘The Godfather of Grappling’ and author of ‘BEER, BLOOD & CORNMEAL!’

“I received Volume 1 today. I must say that it is well done. It is incredibly informative and well conceived.”

~ Paul Britt

“Get A Competitive Edge With These Rare and Original Classics!”…

This material has been in private hands for too long. Sadly, this stuff will NEVER become common knowledge –because most people simply do not have the guts to stand out above what everyone else is doing.

But if you have stayed with me this far – you aren’t like “most people” anyway.

So here’s the bottom line from Jake himself…

“This is well over 3,050 pages of the best material on Western martial arts and if you were to buy them in book form when I offered them individually “a la carte” it would cost $370 PLUS shipping and handling. This way you will save over $320!

It has cost me over $10,000 and taken YEARS to collect the original antique vintage tomes and now you can get the priceless wisdom contained within for just $50 bucks!

Anyway as I mentioned to the members at ScientificWrestling.com, I am a bit on the fence about doing this (because of what I’ve gone through in the past with piracy and theft already) but I will make them available digitally like this for a little while here. When I decide to take them down I will do so WITHOUT NOTICE. This page (and this incredible offer) will simply cease to exist.

This is my way of giving a sincere thank you to everyone that has helped us achieve what we have so far!”

~ Jake Shannon
Founder, Scientific Wrestling
