No Holds Barred: Luis Ojeda on Catch Wrestling, Challenges, and Schwingen

Post by nhbnews on Tue Feb 03, 2015 6:32 pm

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again spoke with catch wrestler and wrestling coach Luis Ojeda.

Since winning the American heavyweight catch wrestling championship on August 30, 2014, in Lawrenceville, New Jersey, and becoming the first holder of this title in real catch wrestling since the early 1900s, Luis Ojeda has stayed quite busy in catch and other styles of wrestling. But he also is still learning, and will be at the winter 2015 edition of Scientific Wrestling's Certified Catch Wrestler Training Camp in San Diego, California, from Friday, February 6, to Sunday, February 8.

We spoke with Luis Ojeda by phone Monday.

"We have Wade Schalles coming down, the head coach of Scientific Wrestling -- Jake Shannon. I know there's some people coming down from Kentucky -- Jay Grooms. I've never met these guys, and I know that they're good," he said. He added that he is "excited to be around and see what I'm going to learn from Wade Schalles and all these people."

We also discussed the results of the West Coast King of Catch Wrestling Tournament and No Gi Submission Only Grappling Tournament, which took place January 11, 2015, at San Ysidro High School in San Diego, where he also serves as wrestling coach, and which he helped run, and had Travis Newaza as the big winner; his plans to compete in the annual Schwingfest, a competition in the Swiss folkstyle wrestling known as Schwingen and hosted by the Imperial Valley Swiss Club; the challenge made by Curran Jacobs to have a catch wrestling match with Travis Newaza; his own challenge of Raul Ramirez also to have a catch wrestling match; his training in many grappling styles including jiu-jitsu and judo; his coaching and plans to compete in catch wrestling this year; and much more.
