Wrestling

Class Wrestling

Wrestling is one of the oldest sports in history, dating back to the first Olympic Games. Wrestling is a combat art based on leverage, strong balance, explosive power, and intricate finesse with the intention of taking down and controlling an opponent. In MMA, it is often viewed as a critical part of the transition game between stand-up striking and grappling on the ground. Without a doubt, wrestling is a critical skill for any aspiring mixed martial artist.
