Erik Paulson was in town and long time Hackney student Jake Nuesser made it over to train with him on Sunday. Keith and Erik go way back to K1 Japan days and share a mutual respect. While there Jake grabbed Erik’s new book “Rough and Tumble” which is the history of the American martial art, catch wrestling. Many of the BJJ techniques are predated by the catch wrestlers, and this book provides a complete history. Read more about it here.
Erik’s seminar covered everything from takedowns, leg locks, stand up combos and even some fancy kicks. He should be back soon and hopefully be making an appearance at Hackney’s Combat.
