"Training Martial Arts gave me confidence and helped me as a person. I started Wrestling in eighth grade and left high school in 2021 ranked 5th in the State for Girls Wrestling at 114lbs."

The foundation of Buctown is based on years of Volunteer work by Coaches, and brothers, Pete & Jay Isip training local athletes in New Jersey.

Our coaches and volunteers continue their vision and remain focused on building our community through the sport of Wrestling and Martial Arts.

kids wrestling classes

We understand the developmental importance of martial arts practice at a young age. Providing kids ages 6-12 with free wrestling practices to instill our care values: mind & body awareness, confidence & self-esteem, self-defense, socializing & friendship, discipline & focus, respect, dealing with failure. Although these attributes are vital for all ages, it’s always great to get a head start.


young adult wrestling classes

From high school to the collegiate level, we provided no-cost classes to students looking to propel their athletic careers. Not only did this benefit youth at the scholastic level - combat athletes of all kinds were welcome. Wrestlers, Jiu Jitsu practitioners, Ammy / Pro fighters, or just a retired wrestler that wanted to get in a workout - all were welcome!

kids jiu jitsu classes

Kids that were part of the Buctown Wrestling Program were provided scholarships to train other forms of martial arts. Jiu Jitsu, the gentle art, was a great practice to empower youth through the connection of their mind, body, and spirit.
