Open recruitment for the 2016 trainee class is now open. DRAGON GATE will offer full support in your quest to become a pro wrestler. You could very well be the next ace of the company.

Applicants must be males between the age of 18-28. There is no restriction or requirement in regards to size or stature.

If accepted, the candidate will move into the DG dorm where they will receive full support and training in preparation for their debut. They will be given access to the dojo for weight lifting and will receive coaching from current members of the roster. There is no set time limit before they can make their in-ring debut. Like Takehiro Yamamura, Kaito Ishida, & El Lindaman are showing with their current activity as a part of OVER GENERATION, there are no limits or restrictions. If you show the ability and desire you can immediately become a part of the front lines.

There is also potential for interested trainees to spend time overseas to further enhance their skill sets. YAMATO to America, and the former Millennials to Mexico are examples of this.

You don’t need to abandon your dreams to be a pro wrestler due to your size or age. The concepts of “My body is too small” or “I am too short” or “I am too old” don’t exist in DRAGON GATE.

Interested applicants should send resume, full body & upper body photos, and introductory essay to
