San Da is a Chinese kick boxing which includes kicking, punching, and wrestling takedowns. The takedowns largely come from Chinese wrestling, shuai jiao. Many of the takedowns or shuai fa come from catching the opponent’s kick and taking him down. Brooklyn Monk, Antonio Graceffo studies wrestling at Shanghai University of Sport. He also cross trains in San Da, studying the takedowns and shui fa as part of his doctoral dissertation on Chinese wrestling.
