The father of Folk-style and Grecko Roman wrestling, The Catch as Catch can or submission wrestling style of folk wrestling has been around for hundreds of years.
Embracing this style of No- Gi grappling gives the classical free-style wrestler an opportunity to explore their grappling roots in traditional old school wrestling, while introducing the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner to an alternative top. centralized perspective of the grappling arts.
Boxing and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) are undoubtedly two very different combat sports and fighting systems. To completely adopt a traditional boxing stance, or rely only on boxing as a fighter in the sport of MMA, would definitely not be the best approach. It would make you susceptible to takedowns, elbows, and most of all, those paralyzing Muay Thai legs kicks; which are arguably a boxer’s greatest weakness in the cage. However, that doesn’t mean that the techniques and concepts used heavily in the sweet science can’t be beneficial in the sport of MMA.
As fighters like former UFC Champions Georges St. Pierre and Junior Dos Santos have shown, a simple, well-executed jab can make all the difference – even against some of the best the sport has to offer. And in more recent years, fighters like two-weight UFC Champion Conor McGregor and UFC stars Doo Ho Choi, Nate Diaz, and many more have shown that excellent boxing knowledge, can many times, give a fighter a significant advantage over an opponent. They prove that boxing can effectively break their opponents down shot by shot and ultimately, finish them off. While the sport of MMA is less limited as a fighting system compared to boxing (allowing for takedowns, kicks, knees, elbows, submissions, and lesser limitations in the clinch), the majority of the finishes in MMA occur due to strikes. And of all those finishes from strikes, most of them come by way of punches.
At NOGI MMA we believe in traditional martial values and virtues in observance of Bushido for moral character development and the cultivation of the mind, body and spirit.
Many fighters today elevate pride, ego, selfishness and praise above honor, humility, warrior spirit and respect; Though true that legitimate martial discipline and mental toughness accompany all who persevere though hard training, the value and virtues of traditional martial discipline and warrior ethos of Budō truly last a lifetime.
Understanding this, we offer both private and small group training sessions in Kyokushin budokai Karate, Thai Boxing and ITF Taekwon-Do.
Our MMA is based on the Japanese perspective of mixed martial arts; focusing on the principals of Bushido and moral ethics within reality based fighting.
Our perspective is conceptually based on the five ranges of combat focusing selected martial disciplines in to appropriate distances of free fighting while integrating smooth flow between styles and distances of combat. We utilize the martial disciplines we believe to be most effective for street readiness and military applications while maintaining the Budo spirit of traditional martial discipline. IE: Shoot Boxing, Wrestling, Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
Note: Amateur fighters must obtain a at least a BJJ blue belt or equivalent shooter level in Submission wrestling or relevant experience as a Free-style wrestler to be considered for this program. Experienced fighters must train at least one year consistently before a sanctioned amateur fight will be considered.
We offer a challenging and disciplined training environment with Real-world training applications of mixed martial arts from the street to the cage!
