Atherton Submission Fighting Club Car Bank Street, Atherton, Manchester. Submission Fighting is proven to be effective in any form of hand to hand combat, be it on the street, on a mat, or in the MMA No Holds Barred Cage. Participants do not wear a gi ( judo / jiu-jitsu / karate suit ) and techniques do not require the gripping of opponents’ clothing. The emphasis is placed on take downs, with a transition to ground fighting in order to obtain a submission ( tapout ) from the opponent, rather than scoring through a points based system. This approach makes for developing excellent self-defence skills and sessions also provide a superb fitness workout. Website: www.athertonsubmissionfighting.co.uk
