The Beehive Brawl in Sevier County, Utah is on it's 20th year of providing amazing competition for youth wrestlers. This year, they had 950 young wrestlers in attendance. I was honored to be the Beehive Brawl's first clinician and international level athlete ever brought in for the competition. The kids were eager to learn and had amazing energy. See below for the entire article done on the event by the local Richfield newspaper. 


Sitting on one of the concourses of the Sevier Valley Center, a young woman holding a baby greeted people as they asked for her autograph and advice Friday and Saturday. 

Katherine Shai welcomed each one with a warm smile and a message, “lucha” — struggle, fight and wrestle.

Shai is a five-time national wrestling team member, and a three-time U.S. Open finalist. She’s also made two appearances at the U.S. World Team Trials as a finalist, and nabbed third place in the Olympic trials — twice.
