Last Friday, we challenged you to man up check out our exclusive American Sambo Association tournament highlight clip created by Martin Roy. We're proud of you, grappler.  You put down your Renergy sandwich and stopped saying "oss" long enough to get a nice glimpse into the gnarly world of Sambo.  Well, there's more; it's time for some catch wrestling.  Check out highlights from the 2012 ISWA Catch Wrestling Open Championships.  

Now, if you're anything like me, you might wonder if there is much of a difference (other than the point structure) between a "catch wrestling" tournament and a no-gi BJJ tournament.  I figured the two would be very similar, with the catch stuff erring on the side of more neck cranks, kneebars and Spandex unitards and less fauxhawks and inverted guard games.  But, I was wrong.  Catch is a different animal. 

Watch it now and see for yourself.  And, mind your ears - Martin doesn't mess around when he chooses his highlight vid music.

  1. What is considered to be out of bounds?;
    In a pinning, submission and takedown situation, what body parts of both offensive and/or defensive wrestler has to be in for either of the 3 scenarios to be scored? If that criteria is not met, how are they restarted?
