INSIDE THE BULLPEN:
OUR PHILOSOPHY, TEAM, AND FACILITY
For Sammie Henson, world champion wrestler and influential coach, the phrase “consistency wins” is the philosophy to live by—as an individual and as an athlete. He believes there are four core ingredients behind every successful person:
- Be consistent in your training/working toward excellence
- Be consistent in your personal/spiritual growth in life
- Be consistent in your personal respect/treatment of others
- Be consistent in your goals setting and adaptability to adversity!
BullTrained Wrestling’s 7 Areas of Concentration (AOCs)
- Highest percentage take-down in the world
- Plan B take-down incorporating The Bull’s chain wrestling series
- World Champion-style counter-offense series
- Best (FHL) front headlock system to a score
- The Bull’s collar tie ride series to turns
- Leg defense
- Most efficient and successful escape series (stand-up and sit-outs chain wrestling)
