Thoughts on Catch Wrestling

By Jon Strickland, head coach at American Hook Wrestling in South Carolina

Submission wrestling or grappling is a generic term CACC is not. CACC is a style of submission wrestling. A high level amateur who learns Jiujitsu or another submission art would be a submission wrestler.

All striking isn’t karate or Kung fu. I’m not sure why it’s so hard for this generation to grasp this? Your knowledge will speak for itself not your style. Often though people like to have a specific name because without such they don’t feel credible or their credibility is questioned. It’s the ultimate moving of the goal post to suit the ego. Whether it’s dishonest on purpose or not it’s dishonest.

This was the opinion of every old timer I ever spoke with. I don’t have time for dishonest people.
