As fun as grappling is, once you have mastered the basics, you can even make it more fun for yourself. Some of you may ask, how could this be any more fun that what it already is? Well if you apply some simple wrestling principles - for example making your opponent carry all of your weight, or punishing him in every position possible, it becomes way more fun. Now there is a fine line between being a shitty grappler and using "dirty moves" compared to being well rounded grappler with "punishing moves." That fine line can often be crossed accidentally or on purpose, especially if you frequent other gyms on frequent occasions. Also, BJJ has taken more a lax approach in it's style, and your efforts could be looked at as crude. But then again just a few years ago, leg locks, paisley leggings, and 98 degress were also considered crude - those silly millennials.
A few weeks back we featured some slick wrestling escapes that you could easily integrate into your submission grappling or MMA game, and today Andrew "the Squid" Montañez is back to show us entries into the spladle.
If you don't know what the spladle is, it's ok, just watch the video. And for the rest of the doubters on the innernets who think this can't be pulled off, just look at this.
So, shut up, watch the video and take notes on why your shouldn't grapple on cardboard or wear paisley leggings.
