High Impact is a hybrid style of professional wrestling, first made famous in 1999 by the members of The MOB in the Extreme Wrestling Association. Thought to be developed from the "impact submission" style of Giovanni DiMarco, high impact is a style generally combining quick power moves, fluid aerial maneuvers, and submission holds into one arsenal. The style often transcended the strength or agility limits of wrestlers due to their size or muscle mass, giving hope to many young up-and-comers in the industry.
High Impact's first national exposure came from the MOB's High Impact Training (H.I.T.) Facility, which began operations in 1999 and has continued to be a source for young grapplers to learn the unique style. Today, the facility remains under the care of two of the style's founders, Perfect Paul Paras and Marvelous Mario Maurako.
