This is a video of a recent full-contact class featuring some local high school wrestlers. It's grainy, but the action is solid.


Here is a clip of Sensei Vincent from the Durham school performing a great footsweep at the recent Bushido Challenge in Oxford, NC.


You may also notice that we have a floor raised off the main floor. It's a platform on top of tires and, the tires make falling much easier on the body than the typical mat on concrete found at most schools. They absorb the force of the throw, or takedown.
Our previous school had 2 inch think Dollumur mats on concrete, which were great, but the absorbtion barrier of the tires is outstanding.
We are going to get some flexi-roll, or other roll-out type mats to put on top of the platform in the future, which should give us one of the most safe and, comfortable mats to fall on.
