A direct development from Ju-Jitsu, concentrating on throws and groundwork developed by Jigaro Kano, Judo is an Olympic sport with the objective to throw your opponent on the floor to win via points or submission. Judo classes are headed up by Sensei John Stokes who holds a 2nd Dan in the Art.













is a formula of competition and a general term for martial arts and combat sports that focus on clinch and ground fighting with the aim of obtaining a submission through the use of submission holds. The term "submission wrestling" usually refers only to the form of competition and training that does not use a gi, or "combat kimono", of the sort often worn with belts that establish rank by color, though some may use the loose trousers of such a uniform, without the jacket.
The sport of submission wrestling brings together techniques from folk wrestling (catch wrestling a.k.a. catch-as-catch-can), judo, Greco-Roman wrestling, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, jujutsu (of the traditional form), and sambo. Submission fighting as an element of a larger sport setting is very common in mixed martial arts, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, catch wrestling and others.
