Learn the Facts About REAL FIGHTING From The Men Who Were There!

Dear friend, Forget everything else you think you might know about martial arts and pay very close attention to the words you are about to read. If you've spent any amount of time in martial arts then you know it is a game of "physical chess".

Just as important as strength and conditioning (and some say even more important) is knowledge. The difference between winning and losing often comes down to which player sees opportunities that his opponent doesn't. These days mixed martial arts and submission grappling are immensely popular. It seems like their is a new gym in every other strip mall these days. The sad fact is that the majority of these places are teaching the same material. This presents an opportunity for the competitor that thinks outside the box!

WARNING FROM JAKE SHANNON: Some of these techniques may now be illegal and considered "unsportsman-like"...

Jake Shannon from Scientific Wrestling has compiled out-of-print classics from his private Western Martial Arts library, along with other original items he has uncovered, PLUS several exclusive interviews; ALL THE HARD, MONOTONOUS LEG-WORK HAS BEEN DONE FOR YOU.

Realize that the money paid for the original RARE content in all of these volumes literally amounts to a small fortune. Now that everything is said and done, what was in the hands of only an elite, privileged few (thousands upon thousands of pages of exceptional and NEARLY forgotten information) have been preserved and made available to you!

"I purchased your digital library, which is a steal considering the value of the materials in it. Thanks for all the work you have done to put those materials together!"
 - Isamu Horiuchi 

"The Authoritative Encyclopedia of Scientific Wrestling is an extrememly pleasant walk down the sport's memory lane. Almost 500 pages of century old techniques that every modern day wrestler thinks he invented. It's a must have for anyone who has spent more than one season in America's wrestling rooms."
-Wade Schalles: wrestling legend, NCAA Judo All-American, 9th Degree Black Belt and multi-time champion in Sombo, and the Guiness Book of World Records all-time leader in wrestling victories. 

"A tremendous, spectacular text filled with fascinating material!! ...Strangler Lewis, Earl Liederman, the notes on gouging, I'm only 1/3 of the way, I've found interesting thoughts and memorabilia on each page! Thanks for this treasure & congratulations!" 
- Dick Cardinal, former carnival wrestler and Catch As Catch Can Wrestling Legend 

"This is a very nice and impressive book, and, as the author of 16 books myself, I know how much work goes into such a project. The book will be placed in our library here at the museum, so that others can have access to it." 
-Mike Chapman, Executive Director of the International Wrestling Institute and Museum 

"The Sport of Catch Wrestling is a unique combination of historical information, a pictorial of authentic catch wrestling techniques, and a practical workbook. Jake is to be commended for his efforts to both preseve and spread catch-as-catch-can wrestling." 
- Mark S. Hewitt, author of 'Catch Wrestling: A Wild and Wooly Look at the Early Days of Pro Wrestling in America' 

"Jake is Southern California's true master of catch wrestling. Merely shaking hands with this gentleman can bring about an infinity of pain!" 
- Bob Calhoun, co-author of Gene LeBell's autobiography 'The Godfather of Grappling' and author of 'BEER, BLOOD & CORNMEAL!' 

"Got your books today - currently going for my Master's and just finished a cognitive development paper on religion and gotta say, I'm pretty damn impressed you have Paul Bloom as a reference in the Certification manual!!! Did not see that coming!! Great stuff, have you set a date yet for the next certification?" 
- Ali O. 

"Phenomenal collection!!! Jake Shannon has put together a collection of very rare books that should be part of every wrestlers Library! I have been collecting rare wrestling books for years and I know that some of the books in this collection are worth hundreds of dollars each! Better yet, some of the books in this Encyclopedia are near impossible to find at all. Fantastically put together this is by far the single best collection of rare wrestling material ever compiled and I am grateful to Jake for his exhaustive work on this project! I look forward to future volumes of The Authoritative Encyclopedia of Scientific Wrestling!!"
- Bill Cogswell, Sombo Blackbelt 

"I received Volume 1 today. I must say that it is well done. It is incredibly informative and well conceived." 
- Paul Britt 

"You have done a great job of bringing back western martial arts (i.e., wrestling)" 
- Rod G. 

"Jake, Hey Jake, I am almost through the 4 volumes of the encyclopedia and it is a tremendous work on the history of wrestling. My favorite books are by Burns and from Milos to Londos, mostly because of Burns' values on hard work and clean living and the latter because of the in-depth history on wrestling. I never knew much about Muldoon so it was great to see something on him because he grew up (Belfast) about a half an hour from my town. Thanks!" 
- Jeff Hackett 

"Grapplers: BUY THIS BOOK!!!! This is a great book, especially for people with a historical interest in wrestling. I've already collected several of the books that went into this and now it's great to have the whole series. I've been hunting for the rest of Ed Lewis' work for a while now & anyone interested in Wrestling, Submission Grappling, BJJ, MMA, etc should get this book. Many Gems from some of the best." 
- Benjamin Bradley 

"This collection is a testament to how the true champions of catch wrestling trained & I especially enjoyed the Scientific Wrestling Lexicon, it was packed with information and descriptions of techniques and short bios of the greatest catch wrestlers of the past era. It was money well spent!" 
- Jeremy Frost, Massachusetts

This material has been in private hands for too long. Sadly, this stuff will NEVER become common knowledge –because most people simply do not have the guts to stand out above what everyone else is doing. But if you have stayed with me this far –you aren't like “most people” anyway.

So here's the bottomline, from Jake himself:

jake shannon booksThis is well over 3,050 pages of the best material on Western martial arts and if you were to buy them in book form when I offered them individually "a la carte" it would cost $370 PLUS shipping and handling. This way you will save over $320!!!. It has cost me over $10,000 and taken YEARS to collect the original antique vintage tomes and now you can get the priceless wisdom contain within for just $50 bucks! Anyway as I mentioned to the members at ScientificWrestling.com [www.scientificwrestling.com], I am a bit on the fence about doing this (because of what I've gone through in the past with piracy and theft already) but I will make them available digitally like this for a little while here. When I decide to take jake shannon booksthem down I will do so WITHOUTNOTICE.This page (and this incredible offer) will simply cease to exist. Thisis myway of giving a sincere thank you to everyone that has helped us achieve what we have so far!"
Jake Shannon

Jake felt this digital Fighting Library should be at the very minimum $127. After all that's just a fraction of what this material cost to gather. And that would be more than fair. But I've bugged and bugged him to lower it further to make this available to more people during this promotion. And I've secured a very temporary discount of over 60% off! So right now your investment in your fight knowledge is just $49.95... Remember, until now hundreds of people have happily shelled out thousands upon thousands of dollars for this precious information. What's more, the money is actually beside the point since...
