We want to let everyone know what we have been working on these last few months.
Do to the fact that USD 259 will start charging the kids teams hourly to use their wrestling rooms...we have deciding to build our own wrestling academy.
The Edison's have purchased land at 11201 West 31st Street South. This is between Maize Road and 119th West. We are getting the house ready to move our family in soon and are about the break ground on our state of the art building. We will have two full mats and a weight room along with batting cages. Our whole family and wrestling family have been working every weekend for the past four weeks to get this done by wrestling season. We are on target to open in late November. We will now be called the Wichita Blue Knights. We will have three different levels of teams...novice, ultimate
and elite. We will limit each group to a maximum for 30 wrestlers. We will have
special singlets headgear and practice clothes for each team. We are outfitting the
building with cameras and the ability to record our drills and techniques and play back on the spot. We will eventually be offering martial arts and grappling and weight training and power building and we will be wrestling folk style, freestyle and Greco. We will be expanding our team and our coaching staff. If you think this concept is something that you are interested in please contact Coach Ed at 316-259-5399. We will continue to carry on the tradition of the NW Jr Grizzlies of hard work, high integrity, character building and proper technique with a strong faith base. We will post tryout information at a later date.

Looking forward to our new endeavor but it was a sad day today when Coach Ed emptied out the NWJG stuff from NW HS today!:(

New location, new traditions, new opportunities.... Same old Coach Ed

Congrats & happy birthday to the Blue Knights! Sad to see the end of the NWJG & association with NW HS . . . I believe USD 259 will regret this at some point.

Best wishes with the new facility -- sounds AWESOME!!!

The Wichita Blue Knights have filed for incorporation and a 501c3 designation. We had a little bump in the road this week with the concrete but building should be in high gear next week.
Looking to get an informational meeting planned in the next couple of weeks so we can do some WRESTLING!
