6th Australian Submission Grappling Championships

This weekend past I competed at the 6th Annual Australian Submission Grappling Championships held in Sydney. It was a no gi event and I was surprised at the big turnout. It’s really good to see grappling is becoming more and more popular. Saw many familiar faces and was good to catch up with many people i’ve crossed paths with over the years.

I competed in the u61kg Blue/Purple belt division and won both my matches to take out the division and I guess can be called the Australian Champ =). I came up against Neil Robertson in the final who I’ve competed against a few times before, as well as an MMA fight. Always good competing against him. He’s a top guy.

Special thanks to the guys at Evolution Wrestling who I thoroughly believe have taken my grappling to another level. Also thanks to Luke and Mark from Lion’s Den who cornered me in my matches. Perfect cornering.

Here’s a picture of me and my medal.
