A critical component in Kajukenbo is grappling. At Kokua, we offer a base wrestling style called freestyle. Freestyle wrestling is an international discipline and an Olympic sport, for both men and women, including youth. Freestyle wrestling has its origins in catch-as-catch-can wrestling and the prime victory condition in this style involves the wrestler winning by pinning his opponent to the mat. American high school and college wrestling is conducted under different rules and is termed scholastic and collegiate wrestling. The goal of our program is to introduce wrestling to those interested in learning the sport, students who compete for or desire to compete for their middle schools or high schools, and for experienced wrestlers and grapplers looking to improve their skills.
