Submission Grappling

At Evolve MMA, our submission grappling program is based on No Gi Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and a combination of other submission arts. The focus of submission grappling is on the use of positional control on the ground to secure joint locks and chokes. It requires a mastery of leverage, human body mechanics, balance, and technique. We often refer to submission grappling as the “speed chess of martial arts”. Our program provides martial artists with a practical approach to the MMA ground game.
