Top reasons to train with us

Our members tell us we are the best school in West Lothian.

Here is a selection of areas that have received consistent positive feedback from our members, and areas that we think sets us apart from the competition.

Experienced trainers

The Reckless Intent Pro Wrestling School has three experienced trainers, Michael Chase, Jam O’Malley and Chic Cullen. The school has also welcomed guest trainers including Paul Tracey, Big Damo (now Killian Dain of WWE NXT), Rampage Brown, Chris Renfew, Darkside James Scott, just to name a few!

Michael Chase wrestles all over Scotland for some of the biggest promotions including ICW. Michael has six years experience, training with some of the best wrestling stars in Scotland including Damian O’Connor and was trained by Frank Chic Cullen. Michael has also attended seminars from some of the top names in the industry.

Through our great relationships with other promotions throughout Scotland and the UK, we get fantastic opportunities to bring in the some of the best wrestlers in the industry.

One to one training

Our experienced trainers offer one to one training sessions, where you can receive training/coaching tailored to you. Trainees frequently take advantage of this to further their wrestling performance and match psychology.

One to one sessions should be booked in advance with your preferred trainer, at a time that suits both. While tailored sessions are best one to one, we are still happy to accommodate more extra participants.

Central location

Our training facility is a short walk from a well-serviced bus stop, with links to the rest of Livingston and surrounding areas. A 15 minute walk to Livingston North Rail Station has frequent services from east, west and central Scotland. Car parking is available in the estate, but we remind trainees to be considerate to other tenants when parking up.

Private training facilities

The training school has sole access to a serviced unit. The unit is well lit, has a high roof and a nice breakout area for trainees to get changed in. Our 16ft wrestling ring is the centrepiece of the unit, with a high quality mat and padding.

Our trainees have a various mix of backgrounds and interests, and we all work great as a team. A lot of our trainees have formed close friendships through the training school, and we have frequent social outings in local venues. The training school has a policy of inclusion: we don’t care about your origins or preferences. Everyone is treated equally.
