Ironclad Wrestling was founded out of necessity in 2016. After coaching in the area since 2012, Head Coach and 2X NCAA All American Jake Elkins saw that there was a need for a wrestling program that exclusively put kids first, promoted healthy lifestyles on and off the mat and chose to lead by example. That belief brought about the birth of Ironclad alongside friend and current Assistant Coach Ricky Korn.
Since opening, Ironclad has become a training hub for kids from all across the state who are passionate about the sport. In that time Ironclad has made a splash in the wrestling community producing state champions, All Americans, and helping those with the receive scholarships to pay for their education and compete at various levels in college.
