    This is amazing. One of the coolest things Ive seen in a while. That 1937 NCAA tournament video featured some surprisingly solid grappling. In the first match alone you see a guy working butterfly guard, some really slick escapes and takedowns, and a maneuver that looks a lot like a Bjjer throwing up an armbar from bottom.

    Yeah, by 2:30 into the video you've already seen several butterfly sweeps and half-guards. I saw a video of catch wrestling in the Olympics, I think around the same time period, and it looked identical.

    luckly for video today imagine how much knowledge has been lost grappling has been around forever but through wars immigration ect things in life it dies .

    like how judo use to be alot more detailed with grappling using half guard techniques ect id love to know the techniques guys were using in the 1800s
