Catch-As-Catch-Can Wrestling is a specific style of wrestling which has its own sophisticated takedowns, mat wrestling, pins, and submissions. These techniques are separate from modern wrestling and submission grappling.
Tickets are now on sale for the second international Catch Wrestling Alliance event, entitled “Revelation.” This event will feature MMA legend, Randy “The Natural” Couture as guest of honor. It will take place at South Coast Martial Arts, 2990 Grace Lane, Costa Mesa, CA 92626.
Catch Wrestlers with authentic Catch Wrestling backgrounds from around the world, including Europe, North America, are confirmed to compete. Match ups are still to be determined and will be announced later.
“We are very happy to have the support of MMA legend Randy Couture for the revelation of authentic Catch Wrestling to the public,” said Raul Ramirez, chief organizer of the Catch Wrestling Alliance. “We want to make the old time Catch Wrestlers proud, this will be the only event outside of England that will demonstrate Catch Wrestling the way it has been passed down for generations.”
Matches will be held under traditional Catch Wrestling rules, where you can win by submission or pin. No points will be scored. All kinds of submissions are allowed, except the stranglehold such were the rules of the vast majority of Catch Wrestling matches in its golden era. Other illegal techniques include groin attacks, fish hooking, spitting, biting, hair grabbing, intentional striking, and kicking.
Tickets are available through the event website: www.catchwrestlingalliance.com.
