Mixed martial arts
Progressive Martial Arts MMA classes utilize Erik Paulson’s Combat Submission Wrestling program. CSW is the life work of Sensei Erik Paulson. He has spent the last decade training under such noted instructors as the Machado Brothers, Rickson Gracie, Larry Hartsell, Yorinaga Nakamura, Gene Lebell and the legendary Guro Dan Inosanto.
Erik’s system blends Judo, Freestyle Wrestling and Greco-Roman Wrestling with techniques and submissions from Shootwrestling, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Sambo and Catchascatchcan. CSW is a proven martial arts system famous for its unbelievable repertoire of submission holds and is recognized for its self-defense effectiveness.
It is also one of the most complete empty hand fighting systems today. This blend contains the perfect circle of fighting styles, striking, clinching, throwing and ground submissions. The striking arts include Boxing & STX Kickboxing (Savate, Muay Thai Kickboxing, X-Training).
The CSW program is exclusively offered to PMA students who are enrolled in the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Program and are interested in learning MMA and the Mixed Martial Arts.
