Catch Wrestling - A Grappling Martial Arts Style

Catch Wrestling is a grappling martial arts created in the late 1800s that combines techniques from Wrestling, Judo, Jujutsu and other grappling martial arts.

According to Snake Pit USA (Catch Wrestling Association), "In the late 1800’s and early to mid 1900’s as part of local carnivals, catch wrestlers would take on all challengers as part of the “athletic show” where locals could stand a chance to win cash if they could pin or submit the carnivals wrestler. The catch wrestler had to prepare for the worst case scenario with the unknown opponent stepping into the ring on a regular basis, so the need for quick and aggressive submissions were a necessity… The term no holds barred was originally used to describe the wrestling method prevalent in catch wrestling tournaments during the late 19th century wherein no wrestling holds were banned from the competition, regardless of how dangerous they might be".
