No-Gi "Submission Wrestling" or "Grappling", refers to techniques and maneuvers applied to an opponent with the goal of getting an advantageous position, escape, joint lock or choke. Commonly referred to as “no-gi Jiu-Jitsu”, the grabbling of clothing in this style is prohibited. 

Pure grappling does not include any striking techniques but rather uses the principals of leverage and the knowledge of anatomy to gain an edge over an opponent in a contest or conflict. 

Charlie's Combat Club uses several different grappling styles as our base for our curriculum. Techniques covered in classes include:

  • Clinching

  • Takedowns & Throws

  • Takedown Defense

  • Top Positions

  • Bottom Positions

  • Sweeps & Reversals

  • Submission Holds

  • Time Holds

  • Escapes

  • Submission Wrestling Conditioning

  • Submission Wrestling Drills

Each submission wrestling class at Charlie's Combat Club will include warm ups, techniques & concepts for the day, drilling and live grappling or situational sparring. Students are encouraged to participate in the live portion of class, but it is not required.  Please check out our CLASS SCHEDULE to see the availability of these classes. 


Commonly referred to as “the gentle art”, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) classes focuses on techniques utilizing different grips on your opponents clothing to gain superior position or the finishing submission. Compared to Submission Grappling classes, they are essentially the same with the only difference being students wear a gi in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu class (a uniform very similar to a karate uniform, but much thicker). Students also have the opportunity to advance through the ranks of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu if they work hard enough! Check out the CLASS SCHEDULE for these classes.
