Submission Wrestling and No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu in San Diego

Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art and combat sport that focuses on grappling and ground fighting with the goal of gaining a dominant position and using joint-locks and chokeholds to force an opponent to submit. BJJ can be trained for self defense, sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition.

Submission Grappling classes at REPUBLIC combines Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu techniques, Submission Wresstling, Judo, Freestyle Wrestling, Catch Wrestling, Greco Roman and other wrestling styles.

REPUBLIC San Diego submission grappling pulls from all schools of thought and technique.

Our game is always evolving! Our goal is to bring you the most modern submission grappling by always being creative, experimental and sharing!

Our ju jitsu grappling classes in San Diego provide a modern look at jiu jitsu without the traditional gi.

Grappling Classes for all levels:

Beginners: with our background of catch wrestling and jiu jitsu, we start beginners with drills for takedowns as well as working from the guard top and bottom positions. Developing endurance, balance, posture, passing "the guard", preventing the guard pass, sweeps and basic guard based submissions including arm bars, shoulder locks, triangle chokes and more will begin here!

Intermediates: Leg locks and important transition points begin here as well as full rolling/grappling! Starting from your knees, you will begin to experiment with the drills and techniques you've been learning.

Advance: Begin to incorporate takedowns, throws, counters, sweeps and more. Stand up, take it to the ground and work for the submission here!

REPUBLIC competes in Submission Wrestling/Grappling tournaments such as Grapplers Quest and The Pan Americans in San Diego and abroad.
