Arguably the most brutal mixed martial art practiced today, catch wrestling's devastating arsenal of strikes, takedowns, throws, flesh-tearing rips, and bone-shattering hooks has been copied by many, but mastered by only a few. In this extraordinary video series from Paladin Press, expert catch wrestler Tony Cecchine teaches you catch's most street-worthy techniques, combining hard-core grappling with brutal striking to provide you with a turnkey self-defense system that will make you unbeatable on the street.
In Volume One: Fundamentals
, Cecchine teaches the foundation of catch wrestling, focusing on vitals of stance and footwork that will keep you stable enough to throw a powerful punch, but mobile enough to foil a takedown attempt. From there, he shows you the penetration step that will put you in perfect position for a takedown or throw, and how many instructors often get it wrong. He also covers the proper way to practice pummeling, turning it from a lazy, hands-only "swimming" drill into an effective tool to develop superior hand placement and dominant body positioning.

has been involved with American Catch as Catch Can Wrestling since 1977 and has been recognized as its leading exponent by the World Head of Family Sokeship Council, an organization that votes on the premier martial artists from various styles (members include such luminaries as Wally Jay, Helio Gracie, and Ernesto Presas). The late, great Lou Thesz, considered by many as the greatest catch wrestler of all-time, dubbed Cecchine a "hooker," recognizing Tony's submission and wrestling skills as the highest a catch wrestler could achieve. Tony understands both the intricacies of hooking and its place in an overall integrated fighting system built on wrestling and boxing fundamentals.
Tony's instructional videos have received rave reviews and have been used to train professional Mixed Martial Arts fighters and other professional athletes, as well as regular Joes. As one online reviewer said of Tony and his art, "His philosophy is simple . . . submission, submission, submission."
