Carl Adams started A&W Wrestling over 45 years ago. He is also a

Distinguished Member of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, a former

four-time National Champion, World Team Member, and Coach at the D-

One college level for 41 years. He is considered by many to be one of the

most innovative wrestling minds in the history of our sport. He has

been introducing groundbreaking and innovative wrestling products to

the market since graduating from Iowa State University in 1973. While

at Iowa State, he became the first true freshman to earn All American

honors. He also won two NCAA Championships and was a member of

three NCAA Championship Teams. Carl hosted the World Class

Wrestling Institute for 34 consecutive years. It was considered by

many to be one of the best wrestling camps in the country. Over 20,000

students attended. He has written three viral instructional

wrestling books, and his nine instructional wrestling videos sold over

100,000 copies.

Carl also invented the ADAM Takedown Machine. He was only 23

years old when he designed and got a patent on wrestling's first

a mechanical and spring-loaded full-body training device

In September of 2003, Carl Adams felt that there was a

the tremendous need for what is now called the Snap and Shoot Takedown

System.

 

The Snap and Shoot Takedown Training System offers wrestlers an

opportunity to improve specific power, conditioning, and speed. A

wrestler can also work toward perfecting their overall attack and their

take-downs at a level that is unprecedented in the history of our sport

He then started a partnership with his son Tony to create Adams Athletics Inc.

His son, Tony Adams, signed his LOI at North Carolina State University, was a four-year starting offensive lineman, and a two-time All-ACC performer. 

 

After going undrafted in the 2018 draft, he was signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars and later acquired by the New England Patriots practice squad, where he joined Tom Brady's and Bill Belichick's last super bowl winning year.

 

After that year, he signed with the inaugural AAF League Atlanta Legends; following that year, he signed with the Miami dolphins, then following that, he was drafted in the 7th round by the XFL Tampa bay Vipers, thus ending his career with the New York Guardians (XFL).

Tony Adams then took his career into coaching football and was a defensive line graduate assistant for his alma mater North Carolina State in 2021. In that same year, NC State's defense was ranked in the top 5 in the country #1 in the ACC. Tony also trains and develops offensive and defensive linemen from pop-warner level to NFL Players and draft prospects.
