Mahalo Coach Rob & wrestlers! Louis & Xavier learned super useful techniques, and had a great time at your practice. It was the highlight of our visit, and we hope to see you at future tournaments.
Can anyone recommend a good wrestling gym near Waikiki. My son who is 16 will be missing a couple weeks of practice while we are there vacationing. I would like to put him in some classes to keep him sharp for an important tournament the week we return. thank you

Sam Higa hosted our first ever All Girls Champion Camp at our academy and it was full of amazing FIRSTS for everyone in attendance.

1) First time we can remember there being an All Girls Champion Camp in Hawaii.
2) First time for these girls to meet and bond with a whole room full of other girls, JUST LIKE THEM
3) First time the younger girls got to 'Challenge" the older girls. . .AND WIN (in jon ken po)
4) First time they were coached by an all women coaching staff

It was great to be witnessing history in the making, and we give all the credit to Sam Higa for her forward thinking with wanting to do a camp like this for our girls. And we cant wait for her to do it again next year! Same time, so mark your calendars!

Only two days until WCWA All-American, Sam Higa, puts on the All Girls Champions Wrestling Camp right here at Hawaii Wrestling Academy.

Four other clinicians will be there including Bree Rapoza and Lindsey Villarmia of Grapplers Hawaii and Coach Ku’u Robinson and JT Ojerio of HWA.

Super proud of these girls! Rita had a great tournament, placing 6th in UWW junior and 5th in U23.

For those of you that dont know, the UWW junior division has competitors up to 20 yrs old, and U23 is up to 23 years old. The majority of these girls matches were against college girls trying to make world teams. They came out hard and our girls battled bravely.

Brianna learned alot about herself and emerged a more confident wrestler.

Rita was spoken to by several college coaches, and surprised us all, including herself. She had a total of 14 matches. After her last match we headed over to sports med with a swollen knee, bad shoulder, kink in the neck, and a head pain. She never took a timeout no matter how many times I asked her if she needed one. She fought hard for every single point.

I'm just so very proud of these two girls and cant wait for junior nationals in july!
