At Broad Axe Wrestling Club, we’re committed to not only teaching your youth athlete the centuries-old sport of wrestling with an emphasis on skill and technique, but also the values that accompany it, like accountability, resilience, teamwork, and discipline. Led by Owner Samuel Walters and Coaches Solomon Fleckman, Brent Fiorito, and Tom Iredale, our team at Broad Axe Wrestling Club encourages a competitive but fun and energetic environment for their students.
We offer wrestling practices for students of all ages, from kindergarten through high school, and for youth wrestlers of all levels of experience and skill.

"My son has been working with Sam for the past 8 months, participating in both private sessions and club practices on a weekly basis. As a physical education teacher with coaching experience for over 20 years, I am highly impressed with Sam’s coaching skills as he has certainly exceeded my expectations in the qualities that I look for in a great coach. I notice a tremendous improvement in my son's skill set and skyrocketing self-confidence in his own wrestling skills. My son has developed from a timid young wrestler to a confident athlete that is apparent in all areas of his life, not just on the mat."
"I have been a youth wrestling coach for the past 8 years and also wrestled myself. My son started going to club practice and getting private lessons from some over a year ago. The improvement in my sons wrestling in that time has blown me away. The attention to detail and next level technique sam has exposed him to I believe will take him far in the sport. Most important is the passion and love for the sport Sam translates to my son."
"Without question one of the best technician in the sport! Coach Walters work ethic and dedication has help create passion in my son's life both on and off the mat in the sport of wrestling. He has built a long lasting relationship with deep committee to see my son get better in the sport. The relationship he builds with his wrestlers is a true credit to his character not only as a coach but as a man."
