No-Gi-Grappling: Broken down to build you up

Summer is always a good time to get out of your air-conditioned house and try something new and different from your usual workout routine.A� For many, summer also gives more freedom in a relaxed atmosphere and time to step out of comfort zones; power-walking and tennis at the country club get old after awhile.A� If you’re really feeling adventurous, try one of the fast-growing popular new sports in America, Mixed Martial Arts.

With the many various forms of MMA fighting, one may get overwhelmed with deciding which route to try out.A� (And, if you’re in the middle of nowhere in Central Pennsylvania, believe that you have no shot of finding classes near you.)

No-Gi Grappling:A� Unless you’re familiar with the MMA world, you may have never heard of this type of submission technique.A� However, it is quickly becoming popular and is used frequently in MMA fights- there are even nutritional supplements intended for performing No-Gi Grappling.A� With odd-sounding names of techniques from Rear Naked Arm Crush to Japanese Necktie, one is sure to find a technique that is best for their style of fighting.

According to No-Gi-Grappling.com, fighters have described the Japanese Necktie as “the quickest tap I ever got.”A� What makes this technique so hard to get out of are several things.A� It’s an extremely tight hold, made by trapping the leg of the opponent and then pushing his chest on the back of the opponent’s neck and squeezing, leaving fighters no other choice but to “tap out.”A�

No-Gi Grappling is a program based off of Combat Submission Wrestling, which was founded by Erik Paulson.A� Back in the 1990s, the Gracie family was the first to show the effectiveness of grappling in UFC events and it evolved from there.

No-Gi Grappling is similar to grappling, which involves controlling and handling an opponent through various types of holds, instead of striking.A� It includes choke holds and ground fighting, as well as standing.A� These holds involve throwing, locking and pinning onea��s opponent.A� In ground fighting, escapes are also used.A� Grappling sports include jiu-jitsu, judo, mixed martial arts and wrestling.

Both types focus on taking down the opponent, but the ways they aim to accomplish this are different.A� To learn more about these differences, click here.

If youa��re located in Central Pennsylvania, Titan Fitness in downtown State College offers classes teaching No-Gi Grappling.A� Click HEREA�for more information.

According to their website at titanfitness.com, No-Gi Grappling classes generally teach an athlete a�?to compete in submission grappling tournaments. It also has a strong influence on the importance of striking on the ground for both self-defense purposes and MMA competitive fighting.a�?

Even if youa��re not training seven days a week to win an MMA Championship, practicing No-Gi Grappling, or any type of MMA training for that matter, is good both for fitness and self-defense purposes.A� Dona��t worry, those sore muscles are to be expected!
