The 80 minute man is currently sidelined from the ring due to an ACL injury but is always there to take training sessions in the absence of one of our trainers.
Graves knows Grapple inside out and started as a trainee in 2012. Trained by top stars including our own David Taylor, Marty Jones and Ligero as well as NXT trainers Johnny Saint and Johnny Moss.
The two time British Champion is now passing on the best of what he has learned from these world class trainers.
Although based in the US, Taylor makes regular trips to the UK and always drops in to deliver a seminar.
People travel from all over the country to attend his sessions. A regular trainer at WWE's Performance Center, David passes on what you should be currently working on if you wish to make it to the big time and give upto training in line with what is happening in Florida.
Marty is a greatly travelled pro who is one of the most respected wrestlers from the past 40 years.
Responsible for training the likes of WWE star William Regal, the British Bulldogs and many more, he is of great value to Grapple Wrestling
Marty is a popular trainer around the UK and abroad but at Grapple Wrestling we're lucky to have him on a weekly basis..
