About Our Coach
A native of Milwaukee, Coach Val brings 32 years of Wisconsin pedigree Catch Wrestling, Amateur Wrestling (Freestyle/Folkstyle) Boxing and Muay Thai experience to the team. This experience includes city, state and regional championships in Folkstyle. Our coach earned the moniker “The Crippler” from the era of his challenge match days that saw many of his challengers suffer compound fractures and breaks due to his devastating submission wrestling.
