Submission Grappling is also known as submission fighting, combat grappling, or simply as No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu, and takes the same approach as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, but without the advantage (or disadvantage) of a uniform to grab on to.
“When my body gets tired, my mind says, “This is where winners are made.” When my mind gets tired, my heart says, “This is where champions are made.” – Baylor Barbee
Submission Grappling Overview
The difference between BJJ and submission grappling is in the grips. In the stand-up game, the grips provided by the BJJ uniform allow for many judo-style throwing and submission techniques, while submission grappling take-downs resemble those of traditional wrestling. Grips also come into play on the ground. Where the BJJ ground game is methodical and technical, submission grappling moves tend to be more fluid and fast-paced. We have found that it is best for the student to know the basic fundamentals of Jiu-Jitsu in order to properly excel in this class. Without the basic knowledge of Jiu-Jitsu, it can create bad habits with your techniques; having the fundamentals ingrained into your muscle memory allows this class to be even more beneficial.
