Grappling is a hand-to-hand combat skill. Combat arts that rely on gripping or grabbing an opponent to hold an opponent in a dominant position or submit an attacker can be considered styles that use grappling. The art of grappling is evident in different Martial Arts such as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Judo, and Wrestling.
Yerlan was especially congratulated by Faculty Dean and professors. We are proud that our students achieve success not only in intellectual, but also in sport competitions!
