Hi,

I am new to the forum, have been practicing martial arts and wrestling since a child. I love all things about martial arts.

I am more of a grappler by nature (I wrestle and do BJJ) but as I am getting older I am starting to look at karate as a great way to stay fit, be active and learn some striking based self defense.

I run a grappling website https://grapplezilla.com/ and am pretty new to running it and always learning new things.

If you guys have any questions about grappling, especially in regards to cultural wrestling styles that are hard to find info on, let me know and maybe I can point you in the right direction.

Looking forward

Welcome to KF, Grapplezilla! Website looks good! I've two boys in school, and one of them still wrestles (the other wrestled up until this year, his sophomore year). I love the sport, and think it has so much to offer. I look forward to seeing your perspectives!
