Submission Wrestling is the grappling aspect of MMA and an excellent sport in it’s own right. With Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) as its base art, this style also includes the most effective techniques from other systems such as Freestyle and Greco-Roman Wrestling, Judo and Sambo. It is the ultimate in practical grappling. A wide range of skills including takedowns, pins, escapes and submission holds are covered in classes that cater for all levels.
