Catch submission wrestling is the perfect complement to our self-defense system. Catch wrestling is different from traditional Greco-Roman wrestling, it’s called catch-as-catch-can, meaning you are allowed to go for any hold you want. Although the head instructors of West Coast Martial Arts love Brazilian jiujitsu, catch wrestling just fits better into the Kajukenbo paradigm. Catch wrestling doesn’t focus on grip fighting in uniforms. Many jujitsu schools also shy away from leg attacks until you’ve trained for years. Catch wrestling just jumps right into leg attacks. West Coast Martial Arts Academy in 4S Ranch is happy to incorporate CSW into its core curriculum for black belt.
There is something special about the grappling arts. You can’t focus on the traffic going from 4S Ranch commons to the freeway when someone has their arms around your neck. It takes a lot of discipline and courage to go round after round, knowing that you may be fighting an uphill battle. It’s that kind of resilience we want to infuse into our students so that it carries over into everyday life. Most people don’t take advantage of being able to breathe, but wait until someone sits on your stomach and takes that away from you. Sitting in traffic calmly might not be so bad.
