Jiu Jitsu in Kansas City

To Gi or to No-Gi?

Combat Wrestling

At Aplomb Martial Arts we train in Kempo (a mixture of Karate, Kung-fu, & Jiu Jitsu) in a unique style we’ve coined as the “Aplomb Kempo” program. Combat wrestling is a hugely influential style of our martial arts program in Kansas City.

Also referred to as No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu, this full contact sport removes the traditional Gi and works on teaching grapples, takedowns, and submissions when there’s no collar or sleeve to work with on your opponent.

In a fun and supportive environment that emphasizes a personalized approach, Aplomb Martial Arts is your place to truly foster your skills in No-Gi Jiu Jitsu on a real-life practical-use level.

About Combat Wrestling

Grappling with it all

Combat Wrestling (CSW) is a modern form of Submission Wrestling that incorporates areas of focus like striking and clinching for a more well-rounded style. Much like our Aplomb Kempo, CSW is a blend of several techniques from various martial art styles. We borrow elements from kickboxing, savate, and boxing for striking, and catch, greco-roman, and freestyle wrestling for grapples.
