This question can't be answered because you've disqualified the correct answer. BJJ is the best ground art.

If you won't learn BJJ I guess folk wrestling if you consider that a ground art. But regardless you have asked a question and then refused to hear the correct answer.

Also the purely western art makes no sense if you wanted to learn Sambo....

The second best would be Judo.

No folk wrestling is like college/high school wrestling you see on tv sometimes. If you need/want to learn submissions Catch wrestling would be an okay option, some decent things in there. But Catch wrestling has no real emphasis on controlling someone on the ground. At least no where near to the level of bjj judo or wrestling.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is from Brazil, all the old Judokas may say it's just Judo but there's a reason none of them have ever beaten a bjj black belt. I don't know how Brazil is more eastern than Russia but okay.

I don't really understand what you're looking for, more information could actually help. You've just said you won't train bjj or judo and you're training at home. I have no idea how to select a ground fighting art based on that. If it's mma or fighting its bjj. If its just for the art learn whatever the hell you want. If it's because you want to learn it at home bjj probably has the best infrastructure in place to learn at home.

Maybe this will change your mind about BJJ. This looks like a calf slicer.

Ok I am learning high school wrestling and so catch is what I will learn in addition and yes Bjj is judo with emphases on the ground while sambo is a completely different system so Bjj is more eastern than sambo thanks for your answer :)
