From the Publisher:

Dear Mixed Martial Artist, Grappler, or Physical Culture Enthusiast, I have spent thousands of dollars and countless hours to create a true labor of love, The Authoritative Encyclopedia of Scientific Wrestling. I started wrestling when I was 4 years old. It's in my blood! Over the years I've had the honor to train under many incredible coaches and, unfortunately, I've also fallen prey to scam artists and con-men too. Maybe this has happened to you; I was so eager to learn that I overlooked the con-man's lack of knowledge, experience, and blatant bastardization of a true legitimate sport: submission wrestling. I set myself on a mission to find the true lessons handed down from the masters of this great sport! I contacted anyone I knew who might have any knowledge about the old masters; I talked to former students and family members, I hunted down old instructionals, I spent countless hours in libraries, scouring vintage articles, tracking down the remaining living old-timers, and taking endless notes. When it was all said and done I had thousandsof pages of exceptional and NEARLY forgotten information! FINALLY, you too can learn the science of mat domination from the legends of legitimate Catch-As-Catch-Can wrestling that were actually there. STEP INSIDE THE WORLD OF THE REAL CATCH-AS-CATCH-CAN WRESTLERS THE CONTROVERSY CONTINUES... Legends Frank Gotch and George Hackenschmidt in the midst of battle. Dear Mixed Martial Artist, Grappler, or Physical Culture Enthusiast, I have spent thousands of dollars and countless hours to create a true labor of love, The Authoritative Encyclopedia of Scientific Wrestling.

The author's early days in wrestling (circa the late seventies)... I started wrestling when I was 4 years old. It's in my blood! Over the years I've had the honor to train under many incredible coaches and, unfortunately, I've also fallen prey to scam artists and con-men too. Maybe this has happened to you; I was so eager to learn that I overlooked the con-man's lack of knowledge, experience, and blatant bastardization of a true legitimate sport: submission wrestling. Fred Beele and Yussiff Mahout BOTTOM LINE: Be wary of "gurus" that claim to teach all the secrets of the past greats, especially one's without any verifiable competitive background and lineage DESPITE what their website may say. I challenge you to find out the facts for yourself, like me. I set myself on a mission to find the true lessons handed down from the masters of this great sport! I contacted anyone I knew who might have any knowledge about the old masters; I talked to former students and family members, I hunted down old instructionals, I spent countless hours in libraries, scouring vintage articles, tracking down the remaining living old-timers, and taking endless notes. When it was all said and done I had thousandsof pages of exceptional and NEARLY forgotten information! FINALLY, you too can learn the science of mat domination from the legends of legitimate Catch-As-Catch-Can wrestling that were actually there with: THE AUTHORITATIVE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF SCIENTIFIC WRESTLING I've unearthed and published in the first volume: Wrestling I, II, & IIIby Ed "Strangler" Lewis You'll find: - Extensive coverage of nelson holds - the Jack-Knife Arm Scissors, Lewis' famous headlock and hiplock, toe holds (including the Step-Over toe hold), and tons more... 2) The Science of Wrestling and Art of Jiu-Jitsu by Earl Leiderman - Includes the rules for Catch-As-Catch Can, Greco-Roman, Side-Hold, and Cumberland & Westmoreland wrestling. - Learn the Flying Mare, the standing crotch and half-nelson, the double wristlock, the head scissors, and much much more. 3) Excerpts from the very rare and exceedingly difficult to find Wrestle to Win by Spyros Vorres. ...and MUCH MUCH MORE. Nearly 500 pages of information by the masters of the craft. Also, an updated version of the Scientific Wrestling Lexicon is included with descriptions and photos of your favorite holds, techniques, and legit competitive wrestlers. So you get an idea of how much info has been jammed into volume I, you can DOWNLOAD THE TABLE OF CONTENTS HERE and see for yourself. Ed "Strangler" Lewis with Catch Wrestling legend and retired law enforcement officer Billy Wicks. It doesn't take too much to realize that if you paid for the content of The Authoritative Encyclopedia of Scientific Wrestling on an individual basis you would wind up spending a small fortune (like I did!). Not only that, it takes time, patience, and perseverance to research this sort of material and many people just don't want to do it... I've done all the hard, monotonous leg-work for you!!
