It was a great night of competiton which proved to be even more thrilling and nail biting than the build up.
There is a great write up of the competition by Meerkatsu which can be found here ; http://meerkat69.blogspot.com/2011/07/event-report-submission-1000-ii-at.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Meerkatsu+%28MEERKATSU%29
All fighters left it all on the line...but in the words of highlander..."there can only be one".
Congratulations to my former classmate Claudio on his submission victory and his domination of the other fighters. Having rolled with him many times in the past (unsuccessfully :) ), I know how his adversaries must have felt facing his skill, strength and pressure
Daniel Strauss continued to show why he is highly regarded as one of the best submission grapplers in the UK defeating 2 black belts in this last outing to add to the one he beat in the first competition. This will be a great warmup for the ADCC and provides all the incentive to do better.
I am so proud of the way he has developed both mentally and physically as a fighter and as we say in the trenches......'it's only just begun'
