David attended St. Michael-Albertville High School and was fortunate enough to win four individual state titles, as well as contribute to three state championship teams.  After high school, David followed his older brother Mike to the University of Minnesota.  Off the mat he earned his bachelors degree in Business and Marketing, with a minor in Communication Studies. On the mat he was again fortunate enough to become a two-time All American individually while belonging to Gopher squads that placed seventh, second, third, and second in the NCAA tournament.  David spent his first year out of college as an assistant coach in the Gopher wrestling room and started working to create Thorn Wrestling Camps, LLC.  


Dusti grew up in a gymnastics family in Oshkosh, WI and spent most of her non academic time in the gym. She received a full scholarship to the University of Minnesota where she earned a bachelors degree in Family Social Science. Dusti was fortunate enough to be on a team that qualified for the NCAA tournament as well as qualifying as an individual. She was also named team captain her senior year. After college she worked for her parents at Russell Gymnastics in Stevens Point, Wisconsin for two years before marrying David and moving to Minnesota.

Thorn Wrestling Camps are located in the small town of Odin, Minnesota. The wrestlers will train and be housed in a brand new 100' X 50' wrestling facility. Inside the building there are 2 full sized mats as well as bathrooms and showers. They will sleep right on the mats so we ask that you bring a sleeping bag and pillow.

"The Farm" will provide a NO DISTRACTIONS training environment for your wrestler. This camp is tailored to dedicated wrestlers who are looking to make a jump on their opponents. In your wrestler's week at Thorn Wrestling Camps they will spend their time eating, sleeping, and training.
