Episode 39 of the World Wrestling Resource Podcast visits with the Doctor of Wrestling, Dr. Dave Curby. Since 2007, Curby has been the leader of a group called the International Network of Wrestling Researchers. The intent after its foundation was to connect people who have like-minded research ideas and projects surrounding wrestling. Dr. Curby, who was a Big Ten champion for Michigan in 1974 and one of the first Junior National freestyle champions for the budding USWF, has been developing research on the sport for decades.
We'll explain what the INWR is, its relationship with United World Wrestling and how fans can figure out what exactly this research can lead to. Dr. Curby and the INWR also produces the International Journal of Wrestling Science. His late son Jacob was a Greco-Roman wrestler and his memory is honored each year with the Jacob Curby award.
The World Wrestling Resource has a slew of resources for wrestlers and coaches from all levels and information about the products can be found at www.worldwrestlingresource.com.
The World Wrestling Resource is sponsored by DefenseSoap. The World Wrestling Resource Podcast is a presentation of the Mat Talk Podcast Network.
