12 Day Wrestling Camp | BullTrained Wrestling and Mixed Martial Arts

Toughest Camp In America

12 Days: Raise wrestling IQ and gain “The Bull” Mentality to be part of the 1%

Geared toward individuals that are looking for quality technique, intense drills, and competition.  It is our hope that by doing this we will ensure that every wrestler is getting the opportunity to challenge themselves in Coach Henson championship training system i (i.e. technique, tactics, running, drilling etc.) and live matches.

There will be a strong focus on teaching each wrestler how to excel at the next level through proper techniques and college style training. Wrestlers will have the chance of a lifetime to train with Coach Sammie Henson (Olympian and World Champion) and his elite support staff 24/7. Our goal is to prepare these young men and women to achieve great things on the mat as well as understand a mentality that will last a lifetime off the mat. The day will be broken up with fast-paced technique sessions, drills, skills, and live matches.

Camp Goals + Outcomes

Two or three Groups of 12 competing/challenging each other to the reach the next level. Coach Sammie Henson will teach all session with the support of the other two coaches breaking it down to assure the one on one experience. This is a highly competitive environment.

We have availability for eight girls to stay in the main house with our designated team mom and attend camp. They will compete with the boys and be placed in one of the three groups but they will be supervised by our team mom.
