Submission Grappling

The world's fastest growing martial arts these nowadays!! 

In submission grappling the goal is to always submit your opponent in a joint lock or strangulation technique. Grapplers tend to use techniques from various martial arts such as: Freestyle Wrestling, BJJ, Luta Livre. Judo, Catch Wrestling and many more to create their own blend into what works for them.

Unlike other grappling sports, Submission Grappling is the only sport where all submissions are legal!!

Freestyle Wrestling

The oldest and most natural raw sport to exist!!

Freestyle Wrestling is nowadays going through an up rise and becoming more popular due to the success of Wrestlers like Khabib Nurmagomedov, Henry Cejudo & Daniel Cormier in MMA.

Freestyle Wrestling is all about Taking your opponent down and prevent your opponent from doing the same to you! That's why wrestling has been so dominant in MMA because Wrestlers control where the fight goes.

In Wrestling you will learn to use takedowns attacking your opponents legs or using upper body throws against a resisting opponent!!

A Wrestler's mentality is a unique one; one of hard working ethic and don't give up until its over. Wrestling is as much technically & physically as it is mentally. 

Wrestlers develop an incredible physique due to the fact you're trying to lift your opponent most of the time, which makes this the best raw Strength & Conditioning training to EVER exist!!

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Literally translates into the gentle art and often recalled as the human chess due to the level of tactical sophistication. 

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is mainly a ground fighting art where the objective of a BJJ practitioner is to control and submit his opposition in a joint lock or strangulation and is allowed to use his opponent's clothing (Kimono/Gi) in doing so. 

The concept behind BJJ is to give the smaller, weaker person the chance to overcome a much larger & stronger opponent using these Principles:

1. Leverage: Learning how to create fulcrums to be able to lift and sweep your opponent's from positions that seem impossible to do so
2. Timing: Learn to use momentum to execute moves using your opponent's weight and strength against them
3. Creating Opportunity and Mistakes: Setting your opponents with baits and traps make them fall into your favorite Submission holds!!

In MMA you will learn how to blend different Martial Arts together to form your own style of what a perfect and complete fighter is!! You will learn to blend all the striking, wrestling & grappling you've learned in the other classes and adapt them to MMA ruleset for eg: Learning how to use you BJJ or Submission Grappling when punches are involved, or how to strike when your opponent is trying to take you down.
