Submission Arts Wrestling

Submission Arts Wrestling

“Submission Arts Wrestling (SAW) is a modern Catch Wrestling based Japanese Martial Art and Combat Sport that incorporates elements from Sambo, Judo and Jiu Jitsu. Founded in the 1980′s by Hidetaka Aso, a student of Karl Gotch, SAW constitutes a NO-GI grappling system that focuses in forcing ones opponent to submit by employing “chains” of chokes and joint locks. One of the trademarks of SAW are its many variations of devastating leglocks. Like its predecessor, SAW supports the belief that a submission can be obtained by establishing either a position or a hold. The practice of Submission Arts Wrestling relies on solid technical principles, live sparring sessions and specific conditioning.” — http://submissionartswrestling.com

I stated training in SAW in 2007.  When I started, it was only myself and 1 other guy that were receiving instruction.  We usually trained for an hour or two a week.  It was fun back then.  Just a couple of guys having fun, learning how to cause each other pain.  As you can see from my record, in competition, I usually lost.
