What is Submission Catch Wrestling?

SCW revolves around its core technical principles but it’s grounded on the following philosophical precepts:

  • All submission holds are allowed

  • Wrestling is the base:

SCW is built on a submission aware wrestling platform where developing the necessary skills to take matters to the ground and keep them there, avoid going to the ground, and getting back to the standing position are considered fundamental rather than complementary. The ultimate goal in SCW is the submission, which can be obtained from any hold, regardless of the position or absence of it, (Standing up or on the ground, from the top or from the bottom) however while on the ground, top positions are favored in the same way getting pinned is avoided, as long as this doesn’t make one vulnerable to a submission. Bottom positions are only deliberately assumed as means of immediate defense or attacks, or when working in situational combat, one of the pillars of skill development in Submission Catch Wrestling, where practitioners assume bottom positions to become proficient in working defensively and offensively from them but always trying to get back to their feet if possible. Since getting pinned is avoided, guard systems that facilitate the use of wrestling techniques are preferred, (ie. arm drags, single, low single, double leg takedowns and generally getting your center on gravity under your opponent’s center of gravity), which basically means shooting for takedowns from the bottom. This results in both standing and ground wrestling flowing seamlessly as one by sharing the same technical principles and goals.

  • Technical soundness through perfecting the basics

  • Conditioning is essential

  • Metal fortitude is essential

  • The martial aspect is essential

What is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art sport comprised primarily of grappling and ground fighting. BJJ is a truly unique self-defense system with leverage-based techniques, including joint-locks and chokeholds allowing a smaller opponent to overcome and subdue a bigger, stronger opponent.

Who is BJJ for? 

BJJ is a self-defense system that is appropriate for everyone regardless of size or strength. BJJ is also known as "the gentle art" to emphasize the

importance of leverage and technique to overcome size and strength. Our BJJ training is appropriate for men, women, and children. 

We are an official training group for Burton Richardson's BJJ for the Street. You will learn Brazilian Jiu Jitsu the way it was originally intended, with a focus on street self-defense. While learning the fundamentals of BJJ you will also learn to use BJJ to defend against weapons and other street fighting situations. BJJ for the Street will teach you to confidently defend yourself in real life situations and especially if you face a much bigger attacker.
