Arm bar
Light warm up, we did roll flow to open our game
 and test techniques that we usually do not use
when we roll full on.

Topic of the day was Questions and Answers.

Every 6 weeks, we like to ask the students what type of
questions they have so you can address their issues
on a more detailed and specific appproach.

see below some you tube videos that are relevant to the questions.

Training concluded with situational rolling from guard.

Roll call for the competition: stu, serge, luan, mark and Jose. Tomorrow is your last day to register

IBJJF Scoring Rules

NZ Grappler will be awarding IBJJF Scoring and Penalties described in their official Rule Book. Click here to download the IBJJF Rulebook. The only scoring that this event will NOT execute is the advantage scoring. This is NZ Grappler's first event using IBJJF rules, so we want to make first sure the referees are used to the primary scoring before using the Advantage system. Coaches, please make sure you read the rule book to understand the rules because we won't have time to have a rules meeting prior to the competition.
