What is Submission Grappling?

Submission Grappling/Wrestling blends together many different grappling styles, creating a fast paced and dynamic sport.

With no strikes being thrown, each competitor looks to takedown, control and submit opponents through a blend of; Judo, Wrestling and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Leaving behind the Gi, you may commonly hear the sport referred to as No-Gi Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Come on down to our Submission Grappling Programme, and learn how to; Armbar, Heelhook, Double Leg Takedown and much more.

What do I need to bring?

The beauty of Submission Grappling is that you really don’t need anything. Just wear a sports shirt and shorts and turn up 10 minutes before your session, so that you can sign the necessary documents. Also bring a big bottle of water, you will need it!

Is this No-Gi Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?

The sport is sometimes referred to as No-Gi, as the athletes aren’t wearing a Gi. However we use the term Submission Grappling as we blend a variety of different grappling arts into one to create the martial art. We draw from Judo, Wrestling and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to create a complete ‘No-Gi’ martial art.

What will my first Submission Grappling session be like?

For your first session you will come into the gym and after signing the necessary documents at the desk, the class will start the warm up.

The warm up will increase your heart rate, using some basic body movements related to the sport. Following the warm up the class will move into techniques. This is where you will pair up with someone and begin learning Submission Grappling through our structured syllabus and through the guidance of the coach. At the end we will do some positional sparring (rolling), in order to reinforce what you have just learnt.

Then the class will finish and a member of our team will check on how your session went.
