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:
