Wrestling in the the South Bay
Does anyone know of anyone in the South Bay of Southern California that teaches any wrestling styles? Such as: Back hold, collar and elbow, turkish, english styles, belt wrestling, etc.
Not necessarily a school, by googling I haven't found any schools, but anyone that could teach me? An instructor or something? I know it's better to have a group of people so that you can see what's going on and practice against people of varying skill, but I'm just looking at any options right now.
The place I was going to go train at turned out to most likely be lying, and I don't feel comfortable going their now.
Thanks for any help.
I recommend looking up BJJ- they have it in South Bay, and if you're looking for obscure regional wrestling styles, just think of it as Brazilian wrestling.
I hear Ken Shamrock live(d) in Chula Vista. A friend went to highschool there with his daughter, who all the guys were afraid to ask out.
Gracie Eastlake offers Wrestling as well as cross training with a good Judo school
I preffer Stronghold Eastlakes atmosphere but both BJJ schools are good.
Migato Judo is the school that cross trains with Gracie and its a good Judo place all on its own.
The community center there in Eastlake also offers Judo one night a week Wed I believe for super cheap.
Not really looking for obscure styles, just interested in different ethnic styles.
