Training report: Side Control and Inter Cub invitational at Auckland BJJ Sandringham Dojo

This week, we covered the topic of side control for fundamentals at both sites.

Stu also continued teaching techniques from the Clark Gracie Seminar to the advanced students at Epsom.

Also, we hosted our first inter club invitional at our new site at Sandringham.

We like to organise an inter club about 4 weeks before a NZ grappler event to get the students the chance to get a bit of competition sparring against students from a different club.

For this event, we had clubs from City BJJ / Atos and Buckland Beach BJJ that participated and helped referee.

We also used the SJJF rules accordingly as they are the new rules used by NZ grapplers.

We hope to organise another inter club (nogi) on Saturday 15 September.
The date and location is to be confirmed.

Meanwhile, all the competitors need to focus on the next event which is the NZ grappler Nationals GI which is on Saturday 11 August 2018.
