On Sep 6th Grappling Industries held their first Submission only competition in Sydney. Even with myself away overseas there was a large number of students willing and eager to compete and many having their first taste of competing. It was a great day in that without a coach at the event, everyone supported each other as a team and coached each other and had each other’s backs. As a coach the camaraderie and maturity shown was better than any of the medals they could have taken home – which there were quite a few anyway! Congrats to all those who competed and the ones who got some nice shiny medals too.
