Frank Shamrock To Hold Open Tryouts For Spot On IFL Team


Frank Shamrock to Hold Open Tryouts

San Jose, CA — Razorclaws coach Frank Shamrock has announced that he
will hold open tryouts this weekend for his Shamrock Submission Fight
Team in San Jose, California.

The team fields fighters to compete in many of the world’s top MMA
organizations, including his IFL squad, the San Jose Razorclaws. Though
the team is based in northern California, many of its members live and
work elsewhere when not training directly under Shamrock.

Shamrock is apparently looking to fill some gaps in the team that just
the past weekend lost a close 3-2 match to his brother Ken Shamrock’s
Nevada Lions. Much was made of the rivalry between the two siblings,
but the Lions notched the victory despite impressive wins by Razorclaws
Clint Coronel and Brian Foster.

The Lions themselves were formed after Ken Shamrock held open tryouts
of his own before the season began, but this marks the first time that
an IFL coach has opened his gym in the search for new talent after the
first event.

The tryouts will be held at the Shamrock Martial Arts Academy in San Jose, California this Saturday and Sunday, January 27-28, between 11 am
and 3 pm.

Most notably, Shamrock is looking to fill holes in his light
heavyweight division, as well as adding alternates in other weight classes.
Fighters of all classes and experience levels are welcome to try out,
according to Shamrock’s spokesperson.
