The Leone-ly addition you need: wrestling for MMA and submission grappling

[div class=”notice” class2=”icon”]The following is from an article on DstryrSG, part of the MiddleEasy Network.[/div]

I have always admired martial artists who have achieved more than one rank of mastery in different grappling arts. While wrestlers don’t have belt ranks, you can easily notice years of experience and mat work by they way they move. I believe that a hybrid of wrestling or Judo mixed with BJJ makes one of the strongest grapplers possible. For example, Andrew Leone, head wrestling coach of Phucket Top Team, teaches both fighters and BJJ practitioners alike. Check out this sweet video of some great grappling for MMA and a really simple and effective technique at the end that can be used in grappling or in MMA.
