* Mixed Martial Arts *
As these photos show ... our head coach Rodney has been involved in Martial Arts for a long time ... these were taken in Gosford in 1997 and were some of the earliest MMA fights ever done legally in Australia!
They're Shooto C class fights (essentially Amateur Kickboxing and Submission Wrestling combined). Full contact striking, all submissions permissible. The then laws of NSW mandated the use of the shin pads and head gear.
Since we don't run teens #BJJ classes on Wednesdays during the school holidays, Rodney has decided to dust off the gloves, dig out some old knowledge and run some MMA classes.
More information & old photos and videos in the next few days ...
