When you train Jiu-Jitsu, facing a wrestler can be a daunting task. They have great grappling conditioning, are very scrappy, have great base, and are very aggressive.
Wrestlers have strength, explosion and body control like no other type of grappler. Wrestler can decide where to take the fight, either standing or take it to the ground.
It’s no surprise that the majority of UFC champions came from wrestling. Wrestlers are to be respected BUT but they don’t have to be a living nightmare for Jiu-Jitsu practitioners, because just like every grappling style out there, they do have some massive weaknesses which we can exploit.
Taking down a good wrestler is one thing, but how about once you are on the ground with them?
