The Story of Outlaw Wrestling

Champion's Ring: The Rise of Outlaw Wrestling

In the city of Spanaway- where Mt. Rainier appears majestic- a new wrestling club called Outlaw Wrestling emerged onto the scene. The mastermind behind this new venture was none other than Maka Yacapin, a former 3x state champ with a passion for the sport. With a gleam in his eye and a vision in his heart, Maka set out to create a club where aspiring wrestlers could hone their skills and reach their full potential.


To bring his vision to life, Maka enlisted the help of former collegiate wrestler, Coach Evan Janson, who’s a young proven coach who’s trained with some of the best athletes in the country. Together, Maka and Evan work tirelessly to create a training program that keeps wrestling fun, improves skills, and encourages offensive wrestling.


As the days turned into weeks and the weeks turned into months, Outlaw Wrestling grew stronger and more successful. The athletes push themselves to their physical and mental limits in pursuit of greatness. 


With growth, Outlaw Wrestling was forced to expand due to their growing numbers. They decided to up and root in their old community, University Place. The Tacoma area, as Coach Cael Sanderson once said, “is a sleeping giant for wrestling.” With Maka and Evan’s leadership, the club will be known as a breeding ground for future wrestling champions and great people. And we hope to awaken that giant.


We have two main objectives with our wrestling club.


The first is to build great human beings. Wrestling in itself cultivates tough human beings. Hard work, overcoming adversity, and going hand to hand to best another human being creates a resilient, smart, and determined individual. As a smart man once said, "It's better to be a warrior in a garden, than a gardener in a war." We use daily spoken messages to connect with our wrestlers and how concepts learned in the practice room can translate to tools to use in life. With wrestling, we believe that our future becomes more resilient, mentally tough, and can live more fulfilling lives.  


Our second goal is to help kids achieve their goals in wrestling. Some kids may want to merely be part of a supportive community who stands behind them when they need someone. Others may want to accomplish great goals and win state championships, national championships, and/ or wrestle in college (especially with today's NIL situation). Some may just want to do it to stay in shape and know that they can defend themselves when they need to. Our training systems cultivate and environment for all to have fun with wrestling while continually improving in the sport- mastery. We believe wrestling is for everyone. It makes you tougher. You gain happiness and understanding by being humbled by workouts or other wrestlers. 

Our wrestling club provides young athletes with the opportunity to develop their skills, build confidence, and achieve their dreams. We need to raise money to purchase new mats, and cover our new rising costs with our new facility. We hope to transcend this training facility into a standalone world-class RTC facility and this is step 2 in the process. By donating, you'll be helping young individuals in the area grow as people, contribute to a better future, and help foster a positive community spirit. You can easily donate online through the button below or contact for other payment methods (Cash, Venmo, Zelle, CashApp, etc.) Every dollar counts! Thank you for considering a donation to our club.
