Excel Wrestling is returning to Hawaii for it’s annual training camp, Thursday July 1st – Saturday July 3rd at Punahou School (Forrest Hall).

Steve Knight has been a member of 2 US Olympic Freestyle Wrestling Coaching Staffs, was the 1992 Pan-Am Games Champion, and a Big-12 champion for Iowa State.  He’s come to Hawaii every summer for the past eight years and has been influential to a number of teams, including Lahainaluna and Punahou.

Wrestlers of all abilities are welcome but those that have a solid grasp of the fundamentals will get the most out of the camp.

Sessions times
5-8pm Thurs and Fri (July 1-2)
Sat 9-11am and 1-3pm  (July 3)

Showers will be available and recommended between Saturday’s sessions. Bring your own lunch and drinks.

You can register online at the Excel Wrestling site.

    How much does this camp cost?

    • Jimmy says:

      Excel Wrestling Training camp is $150 for Hawaii wrestlers. Coach Knight typically brings a bunch of wrestlers from the mainland (Colorado, Iowa, Wisconsin) so there’s a pretty good mix of wrestlers.

      • Mike says:

        Can wrestlers from any State come to the camp? I’m from New York. What about housing? Univ. of Hawaii?

        • Coach Jimmy says:

          Out of state wrestlers are definitely welcome. The only requirement is a current USA Wrestling card.

          Unfortunately, we don’t have any lodging relationship with UH. Coach Knight typically brings a group of wrestlers from the mainland and may have arranged a group rate at one of the hotels. I’d suggest contacting Excel Wrestling (admin@excelwrestling.com) for more information on their travel arrangements.

          I hope you’re able to make the camp!

    What ages can the participants be?

  3. Jimmy says:

    There’s no formal age requirement but kids who know their fundamentals tend to get a lot more out of it. The teaching will be geared towards the middle school and high school wrestlers and will focus on teaching variations to the fundamentals rather than teaching the basic moves themselves.

    That said, in years past I’ve seen some young kids who had a bit of experience under their belt do quite well in the camp.

    I hope this helps.

    Mr. Knight is a very nice person and teacher. It was a informative clinic.
