Interview: Johnny Moss talks about his new wrestling school!

BuEMfFNIEAAHpHZ“I have wanted to set up a school for years but never really gave it a lot of serious consideration until recently,” says Johnny Moss, who’s just announced that he’ll be opening a wrestling school in Egremont, Cumbria.

Followers of Moss’s career will know that as a novice he used to travel down from his home overnight on a National Express coach to London, where he’d then take the train to the Hammerlock School of Wrestling in Sittingbourne.

It’s perhaps not a surprise, then, that such a dedicated Hammerlock graduate would give a nod to his roots in the name of his own wrestling school – Mossy’s School of Hard Knocks and Hammerlocks.

“I want to continue the legacy of Hammerlock wrestling and its school, which produced so many great talents,” he explains.

Hammerlock always had a reputation for tough and intense training – but it had results, with the likes of Wade Barrett and Zack Sabre Jr passing through the school.

“I am a very thorough and precise coach,” says Moss. “I really do believe in practice makes perfect, and will drill holds over and over until they are second nature.

“So anybody coming to learn at the school can take comfort in the fact that I will spend the time with them they need to become polished professionals.”

He describes his plans as “no frills” – there’ll be a brand-new ring, but other than that, there’ll be nothing fancy.

Already, though, the school is proving a draw.

“I’ve had so much interest it’s been unreal – people from all over – which is what I was hoping as I want to reintroduce the week-long and weekend camps that Hammerlock made so popular,” he says. “The rate at which you can learn is incredible, because you’re doing it every day.”
