Grappling comp

Last Saturday I went to a grappling competition in Palmerston North to support my teammates who were competing. We had a great turnout and it was really inspiring for me.
I had originally planned to compete but with the staph infection and flu in the month before the event, I had only had 2 training sessions since then and I knew that wasn’t enough.
