ASWA Mission Statement

ASWA is an independent training and trade school facility serving the region, the nation and the world by educating talented, diverse students of many faiths, ages, nations and cultures and with respect for each individual’s intrinsic value and dignity. We educate our students through in-ring and all aspects of production and broadcast within which the students develop the moral, ethical and professional competencies for successful living, work, leadership and service to others. We achieve these goals in an educational environment committed to excellence, academic freedom, and authentic conversations not dominated by particular political or other narrow perspectives.

Here we seek to foster thoughtful informed consideration of serious ideas, values and issues – time-honored and contemporary, across a broad range of compelling concerns that are regional, national and international. By these means, Al Snow’s Wrestling Academy seeks to benefit the public interest, to help create the future and to further the art of physical storytelling, otherwise known as Pro-Wrestling/Sports Entertainment.
