Dustin Kawa


Dustin Kawa

Owner / Head Coach

Dustin Kawa is the owner and founder of The Wrestling Academy. Kawa was a very accomplished wrestler from the youth level through college and has been active in the sport for 24 years.

He started wrestling at age 7 at Stone Mountain Youth Wrestling and had immediate success. Kawa won three-straight youth state titles before ever losing a match. He finished his youth career with seven state titles, setting a new Georgia record that still stands. His record was approximately 400-8, which included national tournaments and never lost to a wrestler in his age group or weight class.

Kawa's success continued at Shiloh High School in Snellville where he was a four-time state placer and a three-time state champion. He wrestled for Steve West, a member of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, and Steve Hassenger. After placing third as a freshman, Kawa won state the next three seasons. He compiled a 154-3 record in high school and led the Generals to top-10 finishes at the state tournament in 1996 and 1999. Kawa was named Georgia Wrestler of the Year in 1999 and became the first Georgian to win the senior national tournament. He received a full scholarship to North Carolina State, a rarity for Georgia wrestlers.

Much like his youth and high school career, Kawa enjoyed a great deal of success at the college level. He was a four-time All-ACC selection and a two-time ACC champion. He qualified for the NCAA national tournament all four years and graduated in 2004 with a degree in communications.
