Sunday the 10th of July saw Jamie Kercheval, Tomas Kercheval, Dale Fulton and Teleisha Hill take the mats for the 2nd Submission Grappling Tournament. SGTs’ unique ruleset guaranteed for some very exciting matches, as wins were only secured by sub-mission. 

Jaime was first up with 3 rounds, drawing twice and losing just one match. All 3 matches she fought she showed excellent fight control just narrowly missing out on some submission finishes. Thomas had a best of 3 draw with the same boy, he has showed tremendous improvements every he has stepped on the mat. Always coming back for more. 

​Fighting in a mixed blue/purple belt division Teleisha had 5 fights in Gi and No-Gi divisions got plenty of mat time and lots of experience under her belt, finishing the day with 2 draws and 3 losses. 

For Dale this was his first competition as a bluebelt, and what a debut it was! also drawing a best of 3 bracket, he only needed two fights submitting his opponent by triangle and arm bar to take home the gold.
