The FILA Grappling Committee have stated that the trials will be the main way to qualify for the world event.
In view at the short timescales required to gain sponsorships ,once the costs of the event have been paid for and depending on the number of entries we aim to use the balance to offset the costs of the air tickets to the event.
We already have a sponsor for customised rash guards for the team, More details to follow with respect to the modified rules following a European seminar attended by grapplers from many countries, Renzo Gracie taught the “submission” part of the seminar and Jason Townsend(a wrestling coach for Randy Couture) provided the “takedown” part of the seminar
