If you are looking to immerse yourself in the strategy of Brazilian jiu-jitsu or experience the adrenaline rush of submission grappling or Greco-Roman wrestling, it’s time to take up grappling. Grappling as a category combines the various submission arts and ground-fighting styles. Along with the styles listed above, the world of grappling also includes judo, sambo, catch wrestling, and any other form that relies on ground techniques. Takedowns, joint locks, chokes, guards, escapes and throws are hallmarks of the grappling game. Some forms require a gi or other type of uniform; others do not. Some forms, such as judo and Greco-Roman wrestling, are represented in the Olympic Games; other styles such as sambo and jiu-jitsu have tournaments. All forms of grappling provide essential techniques for mixed martial artists.
