The only wrestling club based in North Yorkshire.


York Wrestling Club was founded by Rich Cadden and Dr.Kris Leeson and is affiliated with the British Wrestling Association.


York Wrestling Club was founded in 2014. We run children and adult classes, these classes will help build core strength, fitness and build self confidence. 


Wrestling is inexpensive, only a pair of boots are needed and many beginners complete training in bear foot. 


Kris Leeson coaches all classes, he is UKCC Level 2 qualified. Kris started wrestling at 6 years of age winning several national competitions and travelled the world as a teenager representing Great Britain. 


Within the club an awards program exists, this follows the FILA awards program. This program enables children to focus and work towards a goal and also allows the entrance into national training centres which will enable athletes to train with other talented athletes around the country.  


As experience builds all children will be encouraged to compete in regional competitions.
