Sambo Steve (Stephen Koepfer) of New York Combat Sambo invites Brooklyn Monk , Antonio Graceffo to train catch wrestling with his team in Manhattan. Catch wrestling is a form of submission wrestling where you can win by submission, choke, or pin. The pin makes it more like wrestling and different from Brazilian Jujitsu, where many competitors like to pull guard. In catch, if your shoulder blades touch the ground for three seconds, you lose. In this episode, the Brooklyn Monk also welcomes Eddie Goldman, the host of the podcast, No Holds Barred. In part two, hear Eddie tell the history of Catch wrestling.
