Arguably the most brutal mixed martial art practiced today, catch wrestling's devastating arsenal of strikes, takedowns, throws, flesh-tearing rips and bone-shattering hooks has been copied by many, but mastered by only a few. In this extraordinary video series from Paladin Press, expert catch wrestler Tony Cecchine teaches you catch's most street-worthy techniques, combining hard-core grappling with brutal striking to provide you with a turnkey self-defense system that will make you unbeatable on the street.
In Volume Four: Striking, Cecchine starts by teaching the fundamentals of punching: how to properly roll a fist to minimize or eliminate hand injuries; proper body mechanics to derive maximum power; and the bread-and-butter jab, hook and uppercut. Then he focuses on close-range weapons like the elbow and knee before delving into catch's destructive battery of kicks. Defenses against both punches and kicks are also taught, focusing on head movement, bobbing, weaving, knee blocks and much more. There's more to catch than grappling, and to be effective on the street, you need to have your striking game wired tight; this video will teach you to do that.
