Heh, Cecchine is actually not that bad guys!

*spends 3000 dollars for an over the internet course*

Seriously, look at some of his videos. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oU9CjBIxD8U excuse the hyperbole but there is really nothing wrong with what he is demonstrating or explaining

I'm just merely stating that Cecchine isn't just total poo poo. He actually does know a few things but pretty much packages them in such a way that no one takes him seriously.

Why don't you do BJJ if you want to compete in BJJ? gently caress.

Why the gently caress did the Gracies wrestle? To get better at it and to improve. Some guys like a challenge, and want to prove their style of grappling (sambo, catch wrestling, judo etc) is just as effective and relevant as BJJ so why not go and prove it on their grounds? IIRC Josh Barnett absolutely beasted through the IBJFF No-Gi world champions even though they specifically had banned two of Josh's main weapons, neck cranks and heel hooks (correct me if I'm wrong, just going off of memory) and he absolutely destroyed everyone he faced.

fatherdog posted:

If by "absolutely destroyed" you mean "got a judge's decision after a scoreless tie"

Also Barnett trains under a BJJ black belt so calling anything he does proof of the effectiveness of catch wrestling is kind of retarded

Dear god you are being a pedant, just because you cross train doesn't mean you are suddenly apart of that style. Erik Paulson has trained in multiple, multiple styles and therefore could be called any number of things not just a BJJ black belt.

My gym doesn't use any music. Just the sound of men grunting and groaning while we practice shoulder pressure and knee on belly. Sometimes sounds like a rough gay porno from outside.

I always have to tape down my erections when I'm grappling :/

But if you think about it isn't wrestling almost in the same situation? All the good wrestlers forgive me if I'm wrong come from the US, Russsia/former Eastern Bloc and Japan currently I've noticed. I know that the UK is trying desperately hard to get back into the wrestling game but really I think big, populous countries like the US and Brazil will always dominate the medals stand.

By the by, has anyone noticed that the Aspull Wrestling Club in Wigan has decided to teach catch wrestling again?

For those that don't know the Aspull Wrestling Club is the continuation of Billy Riley's club which produced people like Roy Woods, Karl Gotch, Billy Robinson and Jack Dempsey to name a few.

I'm kind of not shocked by this, it doesn't surprise me there is always a group of people who look at what is popular and just throw their hands up and do something else because they want to be unique. Any canadian goons who want to see a bunch of self titled catch wrestlers go at it in a tournament should see the one in Quebec that's happening the 25th and report back.

I've been working on single leg takedowns as my bnb for a good year now and I think I'm about to give up on it and go back to a double leg. Most of the time when I manage to get everything right (my attacking (right) foot on the outside, not in between the other guys feet,nice low shot, etc) on it and manage to get to the ankle I either a) if the guy is a better wrestler than me he will absolutely smash me down if I do not get an immediate take down and am forced to fight for the top from the turtle guard. Or b) I get the leg but the guy is way too balanced for me to get down in a swift fluid motion so I tend to push forward and sometimes it knocks him back onto the ground other times ill get caught in something stupid like a guillotine if I gently caress up the shot.

It's stupidly frustrating that something like a single leg take down can have so many nuances. Im thinking of working on a single leg like sakurabas where I grab the ankle but also spin around to the side. gently caress take downs though holy poo poo.

Are low singles really that hard to do? I had no idea, I just started trying to learn how to do them a few months ago because I saw a few videos online and decided to try and work them into my game because of how effortless they seem.

Then again, yeah, it was top level guys like Cael and John Smith i was watching.

YouTube-jitsu: bad idea

Don't get me wrong, I always listen to my instructors but I kind of wanted to go and try wrestling a bit and the closest thing I can get to actually wrestling is at my BJJ classes and free rolling.

Wrestling is hard for me to follow. I understand the gist of it but it's hard to find people to talk about wrestling.

This is loving awesome. Ryan Hall has been a dick to me in the past but usually he seems like a pretty cool dude.

That looks awesome as poo poo but I have a nagging feeling that this is somehow staged.

toeholds and by extension leg locks in general are just sick as hell and make me hard whenever I see someone pull them off in high level competition.

I don't know what other thread to put this in so I'll put it here. Billy Robinson is dead.

Yeah, I didn't know where else to post that, but a true legend of wrestling is dead. Too bad you hung out with Jake Shannon.
