Catch Wrestling Camp 2024
with Headcoach Joel Bane (Snake Pit USA)
13./14. January 2024 in Remscheid, Germany
Catch-as-Catch-Can is defined as “using or making due with whatever means are available”. Jiu-jitsu translates to “the gentle art” and Judo translates to “the gentle way”. Catch as Catch Can Wrestling is regarded throughout the world as “the violent art,” as it is considered the most aggressive of these popular styles. It is also the father of Olympic Freestyle Wrestling (once commonly known as Amateur Catch as Catch Can) and Collegiate Folkstyle Wrestling.
Hundreds of years old, it originated in Lancashire England and its dominance in matches against other wrestling styles gained worldwide notoriety around the mid 1800’s. During this same time it found its way to North America via immigrants and world travelers and became the top sport in America by the turn of the 20th century. This grappling art is comprised of takedowns, throws, ground based wrestling rides, breakdowns and transitions combined with a surplus of excruciating submission holds. The term “No Holds Barred” originated with Catch Wrestling, as there are no illegal submissions, holds, pins or takedowns, which makes it extremely effective and efficient for both combat sports and self defense.
At Snake Pit U.S.A. we proudly carry on the history and tradition of the legendary Snake Pit name here in the United States alongside our affiliates around the world. We have combined the American Catch Wrestling philosophy of “submission from any position” and merged it with the original “old school” violent takedowns, and painful wrestling techniques and submissions from Wigan, England, the birthplace of Catch as Catch Can Wrestling.
Coach Bane brings 25+ Years of Mixed Martial Arts, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Judo, Catch Wrestling, Amateur Wrestling (Greco/Freestyle), Boxing & Muay Thai experience to the team as our Head Coach. As the leader of Snake Pit U.S.A., the affiliation has won 24 Team Submission Grappling Championships. The organization has sold over 24k Training DVD’s and Coach Bane has conducted 180+ seminars and camps with the Team having over 450K fans around the world.
Coach Bane has attained multiple noteworthy Legitimate Catch Wrestling Lineages that lead directly back to the Legendary Catch Wrestling Coach, Billy Riley, Founder of the original Snake Pit (Formerly known as Riley’s Gym) in England.
