Pro Wrestling, Referee and Manager Training

Prospective students begin with a try-out session in order to properly gauge their skill and basic fitness level upon entering the training school. The XWC offers a series of classes each week in a safe and controlled environment. These classes include beginner and advanced training sessions, as well as time devoted to character development and interview work.

Each student will progress through the program at a different pace, and that's okay. Our training staff will work with you to ensure you are confident enough and have all the basic skills you need to work on your own in the world of professional wrestling after graduating the beginner's training program. They will offer feedback, constructive criticism, and encouragement along the way. To learn more about the staff who are overseeing the training school, navigate to our Trainers & Staff page.

We are currently accepting new students. If you are ready to start your professional wrestling journey, schedule your Try-Out now!

The Core Curriculum
The XWC can help you get your start as either a wrestler, a referee, or wrestling manager. The classes begin by focusing on navigating the ring properly and safely, holds, takedowns, and basic chain grappling. Trainees will also learn the pacing and general flow of a match, from the first lock up to the final three count. Knowing when to use a move is just as important as what move to use, and our beginner classes focus on developing both the mind and body of a wrestler.

Training for professional wrestling also includes developing yourself. The XWC provides training to help students better present themselves in front of the camera and the crowd. Developing a persona, learning to communicate effectively, making that connection - we add the polish to make you shine! Each week, we'll have a specific goal we will be building towards, with the end result being a better and smarter worker. Having multiple trainers helps provide a variety of styles and we regularly upgrade our curriculum, as XWC is always looking to provide the best cutting edge training possible from the top performers of today.

The Center
The Xtreme Wrestling Center has been put together with the trainee in mind as the focal point. Class schedules are in place with the full-time workforce in mind. We provide an inviting atmosphere with a dedication to putting in the work needed. With the Center being the primary training facility for Kansas City Xtreme Wrestling, new trainees will be surrounded by workers of all skill levels and abilities, all of whom have a desire to see each trainee flourish into a wrestling force. If you're serious about your training, we're committed to making you the best you can be.

There are many paths on the road to success, but not everyone will make a warrior of you. The XWC was founded to help each student start their first steps of that transformation. If you're ready to learn to wrestle, and willing to mold yourself, we are here to make warriors.
