I took the opportunity of a day away from the kids to take photos and enjoy the action at the Grapplers Showdown nogi tournament held yesterday in London. There was a ton of great fights and one thing that seemed very evident early on, was the fact that nogi events such as these attract grapplers from all sorts of disciplines: wrestlers, jiu jitsukas, MMAers, judoka...it really was a melting pot of grappling styles, all adapting well to the nogi rule set.

Oh, and of course, it was a chance for me to see folk rocking the comp T that I designed :D

Here are some photos:

Well done to everyone who competed today.
