The 'London School of Lucha Libre' is a comprehensive and safe way of learning all about the art of Lucha Libre Wrestling.
Sponsored by the award winning Cabaret Siniestro wrestling show, 'Lucha Britannia' and coached by the UK's most experienced wrestlers & trainers.

The extensive syllabus covers every aspect of professional wrestling with a focus on the more flamboyant style of the Mexican masked art form called Lucha Libre.

Lucha Libre, literally translated means 'Free Fight', which flamboyantly uses every possible fighting methodology, gymnastics, psychology and techniques available in the world to forge you into a real life superhero or villain in pro wrestling.(Tecnico or Rudo)

There will be a strict syllabus with gradings at the end of each module to denote the progression from beginner through to fully fledged Luchador or Luchadora!
The course will mix the acrobatic style from Mexico with the traditional British style, covering both countries rich heritage of wrestling and splendour while also giving sufficient module time to the North American style and Japanese strong style of working.

The warm ups and fitness training circuits will be tough!
Studies not only show that circuit training is the most time efficient way to enhance cardiovascular fitness and muscle endurance but also that circuit training helps men and women to achieve their goals and maintain them longer than other forms of exercise or diet.

Vanderhorne, whose background includes fitness instruction, Mauy Thai, Taekwondo & 7 years as a pro wrestler, insists that all trainees must have at least some viewing knowledge of what sports entertainment wrestling is before coming to train!

"Watching wrestling, being a fan and understanding the nature of it, is essential to start with.
Even before you've taken your first break fall, lock up or chop, you have to know what is is you're getting into!
It's not easy, It hurts and it takes years to perfect!"
