Gracie Smeaton Grange wrestling classes combine the Olympic sports of Greco-Roman and Freestyle wrestling. In our wrestling classes you will learn various throws and take downs of this dynamic sport. We employ the same training methods that are used in elite wrestling schools. Wrestling incorporates full body movements to build strength, explosive movement and fitness.
Freestyle Wrestling is a skilled and fast form of grappling, taking opponents to the floor using take downs, throws and grappling. Freestyle wrestling is currently undergoing a revival as many Mixes Martial Arts (MMA) fighters use the single or double leg take downs, giving them an opportunity to put an opponent where needed ready for submission.
Wrestling classes start with a short warm up consisting of exercises that build on wrestling techniques and general stretching. You will then learn a number of wrestling moves. You can expect to learn techniques at an easy pace. During training you may be introduced to many techniques and exercises you have not previously encountered using muscles you thought never existed or have never used before!
Wrestling is a great way to stay fit while having fun! Wrestling is also a non violent self defence art that builds self-control and self-confidence.
