Frank Gotch is, perhaps, the most famous (and controversial) Catch-as-Catch-Can Wrestler of all time.
Retiring in 1913, Gotch held three wrestling titles in his career, “Champion of the Klondike,” “American Heavyweight,” and “World Heavyweight” and has been inducted into at least three wrestling halls of fame.
This book, published in 1908 at the height of his career, teaches Catch-as-Catch-Can wrestling. Packed with photos of wrestling greats and 29 instructional plates, including 4 of Gotch’s famous Toe Holds, this manual is truly a slice of grappling history.
