Tanko Submission Championships - 14th May

The 14th May saw the hosting of the first Tanko Submission Championships at Manchester Victoria Warehouse. Now I don’t often blog news type reports or event reviews but as this this is a first for the UK Grappling scene (the event was aired live on Sky TV and Freeview through the Fight TV network), it was in my home town (Manchester) and because I had several friends and acquaintances on the card I simply had to attend and write a little piece for my readers! 1,252 more words

No gi training tonight. I always love training no gi and our fridays lately have been non stop rolls. Tonight we skipped the usual GB warmup and went into flow rolls, positional drilling, and then round robin rolls. 23 more words

Fundamentals class tonight was not so fundamental. Since the group was mostly experienced we covered some different attacks on a turtled opponent. Lapel choke, a variation of the choke, and a clock choke were worked today. 27 more words

BJJ class and then some time at the gym for some bag work and lifting.

BJJ was some inverted De La Riva guard sweeps which were pretty legit. 33 more words
