Watchdog’s Catch Wrestling Program is an official affiliate of the world leading Catch Wrestling organization in the world, SnakePit USA. SnakePit USA provides a comprehensive catch wrestling curriculum and strategy. 

Catch wrestling, a hybrid grappling style, combat sport that was developed in Britain in the mid 1800’s, was popularized by traveling funfair wrestlers, who began developing their own holds, sometimes called submission “hooks” while wrestling that would increase their effectiveness when fighting opponents.

Derived from a number of different styles, Catch Wrestling originates from the English Cumberland and Westmorland wrestling, Cornwall and Devon wrestling, Lancashire wrestling, Irish collar-and-elbow wrestling, and Indian pehlwani.

Training programs of many modern submission wrestlers, professional wrestlers, and mixed martial artists (MMA) are greatly influenced by catch wrestlers.

We teach defending yourself on the ground along with takedowns, throws, joint locks, chokes, escapes, and controlling your opponent/attacker – a great workout that will build your core and cardio. We also teach you how to compete in modern submission wrestling and no-gi Brazilian Jiu Jitsu events.

Catch Wrestling is a highly effective stand alone martial art and can also be a great compliment to Krav Maga, high school wrestling, college wrestling, and virtually every other martial art.
