Affiliate gradings

I ran BJJ gradings and BJJ and MMA seminars at my affiliate schools in Kemps Creek, Minchinbury, Macquarie University, Girraween, Brisbane, Mackay, Yeppoon and Rockhamptom. I also awarded a BJJ purple belt to Mackay MMA head of school David Garnham. All the students at all the affiliate schools did fantastic. That is a great credit to the students for putting in the hard work and also the instructors for teaching them the techniques of my syllabus.

Opening of Dragon’s star Matt Cooper’s MMA Gym

I attended the opening of former Dragons star Matt Cooper’s opening of his new MMA gym in Wollongong on 2nd August. Matt Cooper played rugby league for 14 seasons with the St. George Dragons (who happen to be my favourite team!). Matt now wants to train and teach and also fight in MMA. It’s great to have him on the MMA team!

Great day at the Moorebank Grand Reopening

About 100 people came throughout the day and helped us celebrate the Grand Reopening of our Moorebank MMA, BJJ and Thai Kickboxing gym. The rain held out and everyone enjoyed the free BBQ, took a tour of our new gym and the kids enjoyed the free jumping castle. We had special guests Craig Kelly, MP who is the federal member for Hughes and the Mayor of Liverpool City Council Ned Mannoun who toured the gym, gave a speech to everyone there and even got down and dirty and took a few action shots. Check out some photos below.
