Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Edward C. Gallagher is credited with practically reinventing modern amateur wrestling in the first quarter of the 20th Century. <p> A natural athlete with a degree in electrical engineering, he turned his logical mind to wrestling in 1916 as Director of Athletics for Oklahoma State. Claiming a knowledge of more than 400 wrestling moves, he instantly produced a winning team claiming 138 wins with only 5 losses the first year. </p><p> His simply titled wrestling manual was considered the zenith of collegiate level wrestling books for decades. Faithfully transcribed from the original by Kirk Lawson and boasting a massive library of 148 photos reproduced with digital precision, “Wrestling” by E. C. Gallagher is a must for martial artists, wrestling historians, and devotees of the sport.</p>
