The beginnings
Combat Wrestling is Japan’s version of Submission Wrestling. Unlike the popular forms of Free-style or Greco-Roman; Combat Wrestling is a hybrid form of wrestling in which a match can end via points or ‘tap out’ due to submission hold. The founding father of Combat Wrestling is Kiguchi Noriaki. A decorated Freestyle wrestler, Kiguchi won the 1969 US Freestyle Wrestling Championship. In the same year, the legendary Kiguchi also had a hotly contested match with American Wrestling icon, Dan Gable in Gable’s hometown of Waterloo, Iowa. It would be one year later in 1970, that Kiguchi first started teaching classes out of his basement before taking his system to the Super Tiger Gym in the 80’s. The Super Tiger gym was founded by Satoru Sayama. Sayama a former professional wrestler and graduate of the New Japan Pro Wrestling Dojo, was a student of Pro Wrestler and legitimate shooter (Catch Wrestler) Karl Gotch. Sayama established the style of SHOOTO; which at the time was a revolutionary style dubbed as ‘New Martial Arts’. Together, Sayama and Kiguchi would go on to evolve SHOOTO into a Mixed Martial arts promotion pre-dating the UFC.

The 1990’s and the Birth of “No Gi Submission Wrestling”
In the early 90’s, Kiguchi began running tournaments for his brainchild Combat Wrestling. Many Japanese MMA pioneers (Rumina Sato, Hayato ‘Mach’ Sakurai, Takanori Gomi, Masakazu Imanari and many more) would ‘wet their feet’ in Combat Wrestling tournaments. It was Kiguchi’s revolutionary ruleset and point system that appeals to a wide variety of grappler’s specializing in different arts. Specifically, the absence of Pins in BJJ, the restrictions of chokes in Sambo or Footlocks in Judo enforces the practitioners of these arts to strictly adhere to a specific path of victory for each of these arts; thus stylizing the practitioner. However, in Combat Wrestling practitioners of Sambo, Judo, Catch Wrestling, Wrestling and BJJ could all equally find paths to victory with the point-system and ruleset. An innovator, Kiguchi essentially developed the first form of “No-Gi’ submission wrestling, a sport that has blown up internationally with organizations and tournaments like ADCC, which in modern day is often dubbed the “Olympics of Grappling”.

From Recession to Renaissance
In the mid 2000’s Combat Wrestling would see a bit of a recession. With the rapid growth of Mixed Martial Arts in Japan, less competitors entered the grappling arena, instead choosing to get their starts directly on the MMA circuit. As a head coach and trainer, Kiguchi’s time also went to helping his students at his renowned ‘Kiguchi Dojo”. The academy housed highly successful pupils such as Hayato Sakurai, Takanori Gomi, Genki Sudo and Rumina Sato to name a few. In 2014, Combat Wrestling would experience at the beginnings of a renaissance when Kiguchi gave his full approval to take Combat Wrestling to an international level. With Kiguchi’s blessing, the president of the Japanese Combat Wrestling Federation, Masa Yoshizawa and Bulgarian, Ivaylo Ivanov, founder of the International Federation of Combat Wrestling set out to take the sport to the next level. Yoshizawa and Ivanov were both products of the Tokyo based SK Absolute gym, an academy known for its stable of Russian and Japanese grapplers and fighters. Ivanov first began experimenting with the adaptation of a No Kurtka(Sambo Jacket) ruleset in 2013, and has since rapidly progressed it into a series of national and international tournaments and qualifiers.
