Martial arts is not just kicking and punching. Many martial arts styles and systems (such as Mixed Martial ArtsSambo and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) use grappling techniques in order to control or defeat their opponents. Therefore, many martial artists are learning submission techniques and counters in order to add a ground component to their traditional martial arts training. All of the techniques below include instructional videos to help you learn more about a specific submission or counter/escape.

Grappling and submission techniques should be only practiced under the supervision of a trained martial arts instructor. Some of these techniques are very dangerous (i.e. the Rear Naked Choke) if done improperly during training.
