Our GrapplingTiger-Rock Grappling combines powerful ground fighting and grappling moves such as chokeholds and joint locks to overpower an opponent. Tiger-Rock Grappling can be used for self-defense, for fitness, and as a sport. Grappling has been known to exist as far back as 15,000 years ago! From the Trojan War to the modern octagon, grappling has been found in cultures as diverse as the Native populations of the Americas to the royal families of the Middle Ages. Even Henry the VIII found time to grapple against rival King Francis I of France. The program is open to all active members (no age limit). The program blends the best grappling systems, including American wrestling, in a dynamic way to create a challenging ground program complimentary to our Taekwondo program and culture.
It (Being part of Tiger-Rock) has impacted me in many ways, one major way is the community of it, the friends you constantly make from doing something that you love to do is very rewarding. From the physical aspect, I have learned to take that very seriously, I work out daily to keep in top shape and from that I eventually started eating a lot healthier.
