Combat Grappling, A Practical Combat System

Combat Grappling shares similarities with Mixed Martial Arts, but it's surging in popularity nonetheless. Without doubt, enough difference exists to give Combat Grappling some consideration. Striking is combined with grappling disciplines, including Judo, Jiu-Jitsu, and Wrestling. Exhibition matches sometimes see competitors wearing protective gear like competitors would wear in a kickboxing match. However, plenty of matches see competitors wearing similar garb to MMA fighters in a cage.

So then, what is Combat Grappling? How does it differ from MMA?

Fundamental techniques and skills from a variety of martial arts are included in the Combat Grappling System. As previously mentioned, this includes arts like BJJ, Wrestling, Judo, and even Sambo, among others. Combat Grappling disciples need to know both offensive and defensive tactics as well as takedown techniques. MMA enthusiasts will recognize most of these strikes, submissions, reversals, and control positions. Unlike MMA, weapon-related techniques are included for individuals that need them.

It's important to note that distinct differences exist between physical combat and combat in sporting events. Combat Grappling is designed to help individuals in real-life scenarios outside of competition. Sure, Combat Grappling System disciples can face off in sanctioned tournaments, but CG is about more than a competition. Its main focus lies in training men and women in real self-defense scenarios and giving them the skills required to protect themselves effectively.

In the end, MMA won't always help an individual in a self-defense and life or death situation. Today's MMA is geared toward competition where set rules keep fighters protected from life-threatening situations. On the other hand, Combat Grappling takes the more practical skills and techniques from many mixed martial arts, crafting an effective self-defense system. MMA competition-style fighting won't help someone defend themselves nearly as well as the Combat Grappling System in real-life situations.

For that reason, Combat Grappling focuses on what to do outside of sanctioned competition. This makes it a much more practical form of self-defense then something such as BJJ. See for yourself if you think this style of fighting would be street-effective.
