Our Submission Wrestling program offers a broad style of grappling that can be a part of MMA training, competitive grappling training, or recreational fitness training. Training sessions are for men and women 18 years or older. We emphasize safety and technical training along with live sparring.
Submission Wrestling incorporates takedowns, throws, ground controls and positioning, counters and reversals, pressure points, joint locks on the ankles, knees, hips, neck, shoulders, elbows, and wrists, and also choke holds. The fluid style is adaptable to the goals of any style of grappler. It is also a lot of fun!
