Not all wrestling works in the octagon. After teaching to scores of martial artists from: Jiu Jitsu, Lute Livre, Muay Thai, to boxers. I have learned that what does work is what I like to call the 7-9-5's of Wrestling.
The 7-9-5's of wresting are:
7 basic wrestling control points
9 most basic takedowns used in collegiate and Oympic wrestling. The nine defenses against these takedowns
5 basic takedowns that have been proven to to be most effective in no-holds-barred-fighting. The best 5 defenses against these takedowns.
