When is training held?

The initial induction courses are held on Monday and Tuesday nights between 6.30pm and 9pm at our base in Aberdeen. Once the induction has passed and you have been successful, different training days and times will be available. 

What will I learn?

The initial induction period covers the basics of pro-wrestling technique, from the appropriate safety aspects to grappling, striking, promo work and much more. The first four weeks are an evaluation period to help determine if pro-wrestling is the right thing for you. Should your training be continued, there will be the opportunity for additional training sessions and progressing onto in-ring training sessions and lots more.

Will there be the opportunity to help out at live events?

Yes for those aged 16 and over, at an appropriate time you will be invited to help out with duties including promotion, security and other tasks. This is a pivotal part of your traineeship but will be by invite-only.

I am over/underweight – is this right for me?

There are no restrictions when it comes to body type/size, but having a decent level of physical fitness is vital. Being in good cardiovascular shape is a tremendous benefit, as is having good physical strength, but these aspects can be worked on in your own time as you progress with your training. Finding the correct training and fitness set-up to suit you is a critical early step. A good diet and exercise regime goes a long way, especially when coupled with a solid gym routine.
