At Comicoffee we love to support some of our local sports groups and teams. One of those groups is Brotherhood MMA (mixed martial arts) from Ryde (https://www.facebook.com/brotherhoodmmaiow/?ref=page_internal.). And this weekend, the Brotherhood MMA team travelled to London to compete in a major Grappling Industries tournament (http://grapplingindustries.com/ ).
In order to really help one of their members, Will Perrin, we covered his travel costs for the weekend trip to London, and we're proud to say that he had a great time and did really well in the Gi and NoGi competitions (that's with or without the traditional 'Gi' uniform). This was the post-comp writeup from Will:-
"Hi. I’m Will Perrin and I train with Brotherhood MMA in Ryde. This weekend my team and I traveled to London to compete in the Grappling Industries competition, Together we managed to take home five medals – two gold, two silver, and one bronze. I myself managed to get silver in Gi and no Gi. I trained hard before this competition to perform to the best of my abilities. I’m proud of all my team mates that did so well and of course, a huge thank you to Comicoffee for sponsoring me”
Well how cool is that? A huge well done to Will and the rest of the team, from all of us at Comicoffee. 🥈🥈 Yay!
