    MMA: Sparring

    About

    This will not be taught as a beginner class, but it will focus on putting the techniques you have learned seperately in submission wrestling, judo, wrestling, and kickboxing, together in MMA combos and drills for sparring. This class will also work more intermediate level ground and pound and focus on what strikes and submissions are legal in amateur and professional mixed martial arts. Ask your instructor about coming to this class. Once you know the basics of grappling, and the basics of striking, this class will be beneficial.

    About

    Submission Wrestling (BJJ)

    About

    Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu(BJJ) is a style of submission wrestling. As opposed to traditional wrestling which forces opponents onto their back, Jiu-Jitsu focuses on the use of joint locks and chokes to force opponents to submit. Jiu-Jitsu is both fun and an excellent form of self defense.
