Josh Barnett Submission Flow

How many submissions could Josh Barnett finish you with? We might never know the answer, but here are just a few, actually quite a few, that we might see from Josh, our cover man for Issue 32.



Way before the public knew of him, Josh Barnett usually found himself in a fight. Finding wrestling in high school, he fell in love with the sport in all of it’s many facets and is a true ambassador of the catch as can style. Most people assume that his background stops there, but nothing could be further from the truth, as we found out while on this photo shoot for Issue 32. A true student of martial arts, Josh is more than well versed in the understanding and techniques of Greco-roman, freestyle, laamb, professional, and any other style of wrestling that you can think of; not to mention he has a plethora of knowledge in sambo, judo, jiu-jitsu (black belt), and a slew of other martial arts. Josh has taken all the knowledge he’s gathered over the years, molded all of it together and began his MMA career nicknamed as The Baby Face Assassin, but after all his victories (including a stint as the UFC Heavyweight Champion) through the top organizations has graduated to The War Master. Still training under the watchful eye of Erik Paulson at CSW Training Center in Fullerton, CA (, Josh took time out of his hectic schedule to show us the finer points of his art and how well it can mesh into anyone’s game. For all of the happenings in his life you can follow him on Twitter @JoshLBarnett.

In this video Josh demonstrates a submission flow, transitioning from one to another.
