Jake Spears: Wrestling Instructor
Coach Jake Spears is another product of the vaunted Roseburg wrestling program. Spears won State Championships in Collegiate, Freestyle, and Greco/Roman styles of wrestling. This success led him to making the wrestling team at Southern Oregon University, a NAIA powerhouse. Spears has moved on to coaching at the Roseburg Mat Club since 2009, as well as being an assistant coach to Steve Lander at Roseburg High School for the past three years. The RHS wrestling team has won 7 out of the past 9 state championships, and has churned out individual champions, and Division 1 wrestlers. The addition of Spears to the Performance Martial Arts Academy wrestling coaching staff, alongside Dylan Westwang, is something that we are very excited about! Be sure to come in on Thursday nights at 6pm to check out our “Family Wrestling” class, and see how Coach Spears is helping to mold our martial artists.
