Shoot Project Wrestling Academy is a wrestling training facility ran and operated by Brent Delivine. The name of the Academy came from the wrestling term "Shoot Wrestling" which originated in Japan in the 1970's, which utilized more realistic or "full contact" moves in their matches to increase their excitement. Though it is based on the Shoot Wrestling style, it has also been known for teaching a more "Artistic" wrestling style towards its students, in which to add a new excitement factor to the already existing factors pro wrestling has to offer.

Brent opened the academy after slowing his wrestling career down to a minimum due to his ACL being torn during his stay in ICE, which was his last appearance in the promotion. He would make the Academy more public in late 2013 after recovering his ACL and would return to wrestling full time.

The Shoot Project has been quoted to fall under the same moral's Brent has towards his own wrestling style and look upon the wrestling industry:


"When people look at a wrestling ring from the outside looking in, what do they see? Just a elevated mat surrounded by ropes and turnbuckles. But they don't see what the wrestlers see. Wrestlers see the ring as a Battle Field, one in which they want to show dominance in hopes of a great prize. Others see it as a spotlight to shine under. And others see the wrestling ring as a blank artists canvas in which we want to make artwork in.

That artwork is what we call Wrestling, and that is what this is built upon, making artwork within a contact sport. Wrestling today isn't built on this, it is built on just the full contact aspect, not the artwork of wrestlers working with one another to perform a match worth watching and enjoying.

Our students are going to be assessed on dedication, commitment and all-around respect, both for the business and the people in it." ~ Brent Delivine 2013

The Academy opened originally in 2013 in Hayward, California, but was latter redubbed as Shoot Project USA, however, he soon opened up one in Hull, Yorkshire, England, dubbing it Shoot Project UK.

In October 2014, Oliver Thatcher and Faye Wakefield were both assigned as the head trainers of Shoot Project UK as Brent Delivine couldn't schedule to appear to both facilities frequently.
