Our wrestling program mixes the best of Greco Roman, freestyle, and folkstyle wrestling. We place a particular focus on takedowns and takedown defense. The mat work that is taught and drilled is designed to teach the students how to control and breakdown their opponent. Strong control on the mat is a skill critical for success in MMA competition, grappling tournaments, and self-defense situations. We stress the notion that there is no advantage to taking your opponent to the mat/ground, if you can't control the top position. We also show some of the escapes and reversals that will serve students in tournament and self-defense circumstances.
Through numerous competitions it has been proven that wrestling is an essential tool for success. This wrestling class is part of Paragon's goal to best prepare our students by presenting a well rounded grappling program involving takedowns, control positions, and submissions.
