Wrestling, Judo, & BJJ Grappling

We teach a system that uses a small move set of high percentile techniques designed entirely to emphasize keeping the fight sanding while threatening the risk of level changes that can lead to striking from a superior position.  We have eliminated many commonly taught areas of groundwork including guard passing, sweeps, offensive submissions, and non-essential positions like deep half or open guards.
