Lockdown 56

Earlier this month the team had a blast competing at Lockdown.
Everyone got the chance to step outside of their comfort zones and put their grappling skills to the test using all the techniques they’ve been working on in class.
Win, lose or draw it was a fantastic day spent with teammates, friends and family!
