WHAT IS THE GRAPPLING ?
Submission Wrestling, also called grappling or submission grappling, is a style of wrestling in which the aim is to bring the opponent to the ground and force him to surrender with a submission technique (strangulation, joint levers or painful pressure). The English word grappling ("clinging", "fighting hand to hand") is a generic term used in Anglo-Saxon countries, essentially, to describe the struggle in all its components. In the circuits of MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) this term refers to the part of hand-to-hand combat, both standing and on the ground, which is distinguished as the "grappling phase". In a broad sense, the term "grappling" is used for the struggle including submission techniques or in any case the part of the struggle concerning submission and what is connected to reach it.
Grappling is mainly made up of different fighting styles including Catch Wrestling, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Luta Livre, Judo, Free Wrestling and Greco-Roman wrestling.
