Submission Grappling & Wrestling
Submission wrestling (also known as submission fighting, submission grappling, sport grappling, or simply as No-Gi) or Combat wrestling (in Japan), is a formula of competition and a general term for martial arts and combat sports that focus on clinch, takedowns and ground fighting with the aim of obtaining a submission using submission holds. The term “submission wrestling” usually refers only to the form of competition and training that does not use a “jacket”, “gi,” or “combat kimono,” often worn with belts that establish rank by color.
The sport of submission wrestling brings together techniques from Folk Wrestling (Catch-as-catch-can), Judo, Greco-Roman Wrestling, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Ju-Jitsu and Sambo. Submission fighting as an element of a larger sport setting is very common in mixed martial arts, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, catch wrestling and others.
