Method Martial Arts offers no gi submission grappling for both tournament jiu jitsu and mixed martial arts competition.
The program is a mixture of the following martial arts:
- JIU JITSU
- CATCH WRESTLING
Because our program has evolved from mixed martial arts competition we focus on escapes, high percentage submissions and position.
This is a common question in the world of martial arts. The reality is that all martial arts have some relevance to actual physical combat; however, one must consider what kind of self defense situations arise outside of the rules of a tournament. Often programs get used to competing within a certain rule set which is part of TOURNAMENT martial arts and lose sight of the reality of actual combat where there are NO RULES.
Therefore, the short answer to this question is to truly be capable of defending onself it is necessary to learn to fight both standing AND on the ground where most fights end up in the real world. Our program is designed to address every facet of reality based combat without the frills of techniques that do not have relevance to real physical combat.
The method ground fighting program is a combination of jiu jitsu, judo, and submission wrestling. Our program differs from a traditional jiu jitsu program because we focus on the fundamentals of ground fighting with less emphaisis on finding a submission to finish. Instead we focus on takedown defense, escapes, high percentage submissions, and dominant position which transitions better to mixed martial arts competition and real world self defense than traditional martial arts.
