ok guys have seen a recent post about some of our brothers and sisters from the other side of the pond are invading the comp scene and are having a very strong showing of 10th planet support :) i think us in the uk have to take a leaf out of there book and do the same! there are a few comps coming up in the 6 months and i think it would be wicked for us to be competing as a unit and having 20-30-40 guys repping 10th planet what do you guys think. also it will help to get to get the 10thplanet solidifed here in the uk and get it bigger than it alredy is. it will give us a perfect opportunity for us to showcase our skills to the higher gardes in the us whch could help us grade quicker ;)any1 got a list of any upcoming events and dates ect. :D

Karim i started competing last year my 1st comp was on june 2010 and i competed 4 times within 7months and my game elavated so much within them 7 months. i competed last year 1ce at the seni gracie invitational which was a great event and the level was really good it was held in london. also i competed 3 times at the ground control organised by jason tan last year. Im hoping to compete in these events again this year and more if possible.

I've been a member here for a few months, but this post has made me break my silence, and actually post something! I'm well up for this.

This will be my first year competing, and aim to hit as many as possible. The upcoming comps I'll be going to are:

Feb 27th: ground control in London www.gcgrappling.com
March 6th (I think, or something around then) grapple mania Leeds www.grapplemania.co.uk
March 27th ground control Manchester.

And as many as I can make/afford from then on.

I also intend on coming through to Nottingham at some point to train at the school (I live a few hours away, but am hoping to crash on a mates floor for a few weeks)...any chance you can send me a link or some more details about prices/timetable etc?

I'll be at Ground Control London, might be doing a superfight there, failing that, probably only reffing. And can't do Ground Control Manchester because in Cali for the Pan-Ams. Sorry. >_<

I'm goin in to my first comp at under 73kg beginner in London at the end of this month, but hopefully by Manchester I'll have a couple of comps experience under me, and be able to judge it better. So i could be under 67kg by then (70 at the moment), or maybe enter at intermediate by then... Who knows? I have NO IDEA what to expect as I've never even been to one!

Ull b fine. best way to get better is to get right in there and start mixing it up.

thats the same as me, i want to be entering intermediate but because i dont know what to expect i think its best to go beginner for your first one. if i do well in beginner then the next competition il go intermediate
