JAPAN/AUSTRALIA: Fighting Spirit Challenge #3 + Ikuto Hidaka Seminar

October 12, 2012

Many dream about making it to Japan to train and perform as a Professional Wrestler. The ‘Land of the Rising Sun’ is truly the last stronghold of Professional Wrestling, not Sports Entertainment, but pure Professional Wrestling. The emphasis is on the athletic ability of the wrestler.

It is a goal of the Pro Wrestling Dojo to help give Professional Wrestlers in Oceania the chance to live their dream of wrestling in the great country of Japan. In the last year, 9 wrestlers from ZERO1 Pro Wrestling Australia have had the opportunity to train and wrestle for ZERO1 Japan.

We are looking to find wrestlers outside of the ZERO1 Australia Dojo to be given an opportunity to fulfil their dream.

We have the pleasure of announcing that the 3rd ZERO1 Australia Fighting Spirit Challenge will be run by Hartley Jackson and legendary Japanese Junior Heavyweight Ikuto Hidaka!

***As an added bonus, the first 2 hours of the camp will be a wrestling based seminar held by Ikuto Hidaka for those who do not want to partake in the tryout aspect of the day but would still like to experience world class training. The price for this 2 hour portion of the day will be $60, or included in the entire package for Fighting Spirit Challengers. Those who pay the full $250 will continue on for a further 2 hours under the official tryout and be considered for the tour of Japan.

The ZERO1 Fighting Spirit Challenge – Oceania:


When: Saturday November 24th (1pm – 5pm)

On Friday, November 23rd Fighting Spirit Challengers may also have an opportunity to take part in a match on live ZERO1 Australia event ‘WRESTLE RAMPAGE’ to be held at Thebarton Theatre in Adelaide. The following day you will experience the 4 hour tryout at The Pro Wrestling Dojo.

Where: The Pro Wrestling Dojo (Light Square, Adelaide, South Australia)

Cost: Ikuto Hidaka Seminar – AU$60 (FREE for those doing the Fighting Spirit Challenge)

Fighting Spirit Challenge – AU$250
