A Short History of Catch Wrestling
AKA British Jiu-Jitsu.
There aren’t really any pictures on Unsplash of real “catch-wrestling”, so I used the picture of pro-wrestling above because, as it turns out, pro-wrestling actually has a lot more in common with catch-wrestling than I thought.
I’ve been really interested in Catch-Wrestling for the last few days now, so I decided to do some exploration on the history of the sport.
What I found is incredibly interesting.
In addition to its unique brutality, joint manipulation, and grit, catch wrestling also has a history that’s deeply interesting.
Catch-wrestling and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu are a lot more alike than you might think.
