Empire Wrestling Academy welcomes everyone from seasoned champs to novice wrestlers.
At Empire, we teach Iowa-Style Wrestling which has produced champion wrestlers throughout the East Coast—including 42 state title. As a matter of fact, over 100 of our athletes have enjoyed successful collegiate carrers after training with us, and all but two Action-1 New York State champions trained at Empire.
Our training facilities are located in New York (3 locations) and Connecticut, and rival even the best D-1 gyms in the country. Each boast spacious training areas with towering ceilings and state-of-the-art full-size wresting matts, climbing ropes, saunas and weight rooms.
Success is a journey
and YOURS starts here
At Empire Wrestling Academy, our goal is to use wrestling as a vehicle to promote a healthy lifestyle. Wrestling provides young athletes with mental tools to approach life in a positive "can do" manner. Obstacles are looked at as challenges by wrestlers not problems. Excuses are not part of our culture.
We do not measure success with medals or trophies. We believe that an individual is successful when he or she continually commits to close the gap between their performance and their potential and when he or she understands that such a commitment represents a way of life, not merely a means to an end.
Empire Wrestling Academy provides the tools that student-athletes need in order to undertake such commitments.
