About the Salt Lake Grappling Club

Welcome to the home of the Reigning North American Grappling Association Utah No-Gi Champions!

Membership Fees:   $60/month unlimited.

Our pricing is month-to-month.  We do not require contracts or direct transfers out of your bank account.

The Salt Lake Grappling Club is the first submission grappling gym in Salt Lake City that is 100% no-gi and aimed solely at grappling competition instead of MMA.  We have no kickboxing, kettlebells, tractor tires, or pullup bars.   We are 100% focused on no-gi grappling.

What we believe in:
We don’t believe in restricting our submission game to the upper half of the body.   We believe that techniques involving knee reaping and heelhooks are an important part of grappling that  shouldn’t be neglected.  We also believe that learning as much as possible about these leg attacks is the best way to avoid injury from these techniques. We don’t believe in starting from the knees. We don’t believe in rule sets that forbid reaping of the leg.  We believe you should start on your feet or from a position that actually happens in grappling matches.  We want to train with, and compete against, grapplers from a wide spectrum of backgrounds.   We  don’t care if you have trained in wrestling,  Brazilian jiu-jitsu, judo, sambo, 10th Planet jiu-jitsu, catch wrestling, or some other type of submission grappling.    If you like no-gi submission grappling, we want to train with you.  We love the 10th Planet System and teach 10thPJJ techniques often.   All you 10th Planet Ronin are welcome here!

Who we are:
We are a group of grapplers who want to get better at grappling. We don’t believe we are world crushers who can dominate all other grapplers on earth. But, we do believe that we love no-gi grappling as much as almost anybody in the world. So, we are very excited to provide a place for other grapplers to train in the sport that we love.

“Super knowledgeable instructors, laid back (but hard working) atmosphere, great training partners, good location, dope open mat on sundays.

This gym offers first class, super technical instruction from all 3 instructors. Class sizes are small, so you are guaranteed to get a ton of help and personal attention.. and it all comes at a cost that is literally one half to one third as much as most local gyms.

These guys are dedicatedly improving the gym and adding new classes all the time. It’s a no brainer. If you want to up your No Gi grappling game, SLGC is the place to be.”
