This Is Not Jiu Jitsu!


The Liberty Bell Classic / King of Catch Wrestling pinning provision pushes the action (no more stalling in the guard or “lay and pray”) and with no point system, there are no politics or biased decision wins.

There are NO-HOLDS BARRED and it is open to all competitors (to prevent manipulation via booking mismatched or weak opponents, no paper-champions here)!

PLUS: Every competitor gets at least 2 matches since it is best 2 of 3 falls!


Have you wanted to enter a submission grappling tournament but felt your submission skills weren’t up to par?

Well all you have to do is pin your opponent while avoiding a submission to win at the King of Catch Wrestling!


How many times have you competed against a sandbagger?

At the King of Catch Wrestling, there is no ‘beginner’, intermediate’, or ‘advanced’ division. The whole tournament is open to all levels.

WORSE, how many times have you lost a match on an arbitrary ‘point system’? At the King of Catch Wrestling we have no point system WHATSOEVER.


Many know that Mitsuyo Maeda taught Helio Gracie to fight.

What most do not know is that Maeda perfected his system competing in Catch-As-Catch-Can tournaments (as “Count Koma”) at the turn of the 20th Century.

Maeda is rumored to have fought over 2,000 matches in his career and he only lost two matches and one in the “catch-as-catch-can” world championships held in London (he entered in both the middleweight and heavyweight divisions and advanced to the semi-finals in two weight classes).

Maeda wasn’t the only one, the famed Masahiko Kimura learned legitimate Catch-As-Catch-Can while working as a Professional Wrestler for Rikidozan in the early 1950s. Later Kimura would go on to beat Helio Gracie with the bread and butter hold of catch wrestling; the double wrist lock. Join the long tradition of game Jiu-Jitsu players that compete in Catch-As-Catch-Can competitions!
