OUR WRESTLING / TAKEDOWN CLASSES

ENVIRONMENT

While you might think of wrestling/ takedown classes as a room full of meat-heads, our classes are really focused on three things: Learning, Comfort and Application. We aren't a wrestling gym for those looking to do Profession Wrestling (WWE/WWF) and we don't want anyone going too intense with people that are new. Instead, we teach wrestling and takedowns for two applications:

TOURNAMENTS AND JIU-JITSU

As we are primarily a jiu-jitsu school, a majority of our class is focused on showing people how to apply wrestling and takedowns to jiu-jitsu. This could mean using a gi or no gi. As mentioned previously, if you are preparing for a tournament or looking to add more to your takedown arsenal, then this class is for you. You'll go over how to defend and execute the right takedown strategy for you as not all takedowns are the right fit for everyone. Come and find which takedown is best for your body.

REFINEMENT OF EXISTING WRESTLING SKILLS

Really good wrestlers are good at one or two takedowns. They understand almost every takedown, but really focus on honing their one or two takedowns. Similarly, if you have experience and want to continue sharpening your wrestling, this class is great because you can practice on beginners and advanced people to get rounds in and work on your arsenal.
