See what we mean?
If you are new to competitive female submission wrestling it is important to start with the basics.
Then you will evolve too.
What is competitive female wrestling 101?
We would say learning the headlock. Perfect it.
For our purposes here, 101B would be to learn Jiu-jitsu. Learn that well and you will become a formidable female submission wrestler.
When we look at some of the best submission wrestlers at their WB270.com profile, virtually all of them have learned jujitsu.
One of our favorites is the German female wrestler named Warrior Amazon. At her profile she shares, “Warrior Amazone, a name creation that appears raw, dangerous and also somewhat exotic. The name is program. Four years ago I entered the world of session wrestling. Already at that time equipped with numerous previous knowledge. With a Blue Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in my luggage, I broke new ground. I heard that there are a lot of people outside of martial arts circles who think they can compete with strong women in paid wrestling matches.”
We have purchased many of her matches. She is correct.
Man or woman, few can compete with her. She is a beautiful fit specimen.
If becoming a wrestler is your goal, our suggestion is to aim high.
Jiu jitsu is one of the highest levels.
Reading about it is a great place to start.
