Techniques and submissions from Shoot wrestling, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Sambo and Catch wrestling. CSW trains the student to strike, clinch, takedown and submit on the ground. Suitable for either sport, mixed martial arts or self defence.

The skills taught in STX are easily translated in MMA, Kickboxing and self defence situations.
Chum Sut Wing Tzun
Wing Tzun is authentic Chinese Kung-Fu that does not rely on size, strength, or toughness, as these factors are usually in favour of the attacker. Translated literally, Wing Tzun means “Internal Spring” Wing Tzun is also known as “Wing Tsun, Ving Chun, Wing Chun etc.
Wing Tzun is different from many of martial arts styles, such as Karate, Ju-Jitsu and Tae Kwon Do. These martial arts styles block first and then attack.
Wing Tzun uses primarily straight line, fast, direct striking techniques, redirecting the force of an opponents attack rather than attempting to meet force directly with Force.

Combat Submission Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Developed by the Gracie family in Brazil, this system is famous for its devastating ground techniques. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was specifically developed to allow smaller persons the ability to defeat much larger opponents, through the application of leverage techniques, allowing the individual to apply various amounts of chokes, holds, locks and joint manipulation to bring down their opponent.
It is not just a martial art, it is also a sport, a method for increasing physical strength and fitness and building character in young people, and ultimately a way of life.
MMA (Mixed Martial Arts)
Mixed martial arts is a full contact sport that allows a variety of fighting styles to be used (including martial and non-martial arts techniques). Striking and grappling techniques, either standing or on the ground, are allowed.
The early years of the sport saw a wide variety of traditional styles, but as the sport evolved many styles were shown to be ineffective. It is now common for fighters to train in multiple styles, creating a more balanced skill set.
Freestyle Olympic Wrestling
is a combat sport contested on an octagonal mat with a circle inside. It is one of two variants of wrestling that take place at the Olympic games, with the other being Greco-Roman Wrestling. In Freestyle Wrestling, athletes are permitted to grab opponents below the waist and use their legs for both attacking and defensive moves. The sport incorporates elements from a variety of other disciplines, including sambo, judo and traditional wrestling.
Unlike Greco-Roman Wrestling, both men and women compete in Freestyle Wrestling at the Olympics. The sport is also contested at a wide variety of different weight levels
In Freestyle Wrestling, the aim is to tackle an opponent and place their shoulders firmly on the mat for a couple of seconds – which is known as a “pin” or “fall” and will result in a victory. However, an athlete can also win a fight in a variety of other ways, which are explored in greater detail in the “Winning” section below.
Stick / S Weapons Training
Chum Sut weapons training in builds directly upon the unarmed student. The involvement of weapons does however shift the emphasis towards the need for manoeuvrability rather than stability. The main weapons used are the sticks of various lengths, namely: gada (short stick or baton), tongat (medium length stick), toya (long stick).
The most obvious change to incorporate weapons is the aspect of distance associated with the length of the weapon and mastering the implications of this. The other significant matter is, of course, the manipulation of the weapon itself.
Each weapon presents its own set of challenges to master. As with empty hands, the emphasis is upon partner practice. The basic combinations of attack and defence are replicated with gada against gada, gada against tongat, tongat against tongat and so on.
