Frank Gotch is universally regarded as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time. His relentless training regimen and ferocious style in the ring that enabled him to dominate all comers have been well documented, but this Paladin Press Combat Classic reprint offers a fascinating portrait of another important aspect of his success – his unparalleled skill at the art of catch-as-catch-can wrestling.
Published soon after Gotch's epic 1908 world championship defeat of George "the Russian Lion" Hackenschmidt, this booklet showcases Gotch performing his signature wrestling moves in some 30 clear, instructional photographs, along with tips on how to make them work against an opponent. It also contains his thoughts on the science of wrestling, advice on training and photos of Hackenschimdt, Farmer Burns, George Bothner, Dan McLeod, Fred Beell, Leo Pardello and other greats of the day.
