Welcome to Purler Wrestling Academy, also known as PWA Kansas City Area

Purler Wrestling Academy is an open enrollment, year-round program dedicated to providing athletes ages 8-18 and any skill level (one year wrestling experience required) the tools they need to accomplish their goals. Every athlete will have the opportunity to realize their full potential through technical learning sessions, focused drilling, and live wrestling sessions, all of which are conducted in a highly intensive, positive atmosphere.

We currently offer four training sites. Each practice will be highly structured, intense, and well organized. Additionally, every practice is a progression from the prior, so it’s important the athletes commit to the program.

If you are interested in Purler Wrestling, feel free to contact Tony at any time. PWA is open to all; WE DO NOT RECRUIT, AND ALL ARE WELCOME!

Purler Wrestling Academy Format

Wrestlers attend one PWA Kansas City Area location of their choice per week. Fee is $88 a month per athlete (includes online payment fees) for the 4-5 practices during each monthly session. Go to the Purler Wrestling Academy schedule page and choose the location that is convenient. (Siblings can attend at a discounted rate of $150 for 2 siblings and $210 for 3 siblings per month)

We go year-round, and tuition is on a month to month basis.

Note: The kids that are truly serious about wrestling are the ones that attend 10 or more months a year. These kids are the ones that will make mind blowing gains each year. And as we say, ‘Those who stay will be champions.’

“We are so happy we found Tony Purler’s program. Our son has gotten so much better. Last year he lost every single match – at the end of last year’s season he started going to PWA academy & the summer camps – he stayed with the program through the off season & this year he’s already had a first place finish – had we not found this program I’m sure he would have quit wrestling by now. The camps & training sessions are tough but our son has gotten more motivated to work hard. We cannot say enough good things about Tony & his program.”
