COMBAT SUBMISSION WRESTLING (CSW) blends various martial arts including but not limited to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), Russian Sambo, Freestyle Wrestling, Greco-Roman Wrestling, Shootwrestling, Judo and Catch-as-catch-can. CSW is a No Gi Submission Wrestling system developed and founded by Sensei Erik Paulson. Erik is the Former 2x Light Heavyweight Shooto Champion of the World and has train extensively under Martial Arts Legends such as: Guru Dan Inosanto, Sensei Larry Hartsell, Sensei Yori Nakamura, Rigan Machado and Gene Le Bell to name a few.


In class we focus on Wrestling fundamentals and the skills required to control one's opponent, using technique and leverage so as to gain a dominant position. From these positions students will learn escapes, transitions and submission holds via joint locks or chokeholds.

CSW is a thinking persons Martial Art and has the added bonus of increasing your cardiovascular fitness, strength and flexibility.


The CSW class runs on a Thursday at 8pm. The system has a curriculum for students to obtain their Student Level rankings. Gradings are held every 6 months and are not compulsory. 


No one is expected to compete (unless you want to) as most of our students just train for fun and fitness.


You will be looked after at all times as your safety is our primary concern and the atmosphere is kept relaxed and friendly.
