It is with great delight that ADCC UK announces its partnership with SFN EXPO: Scotland’s biggest Sport, Fitness and Nutrition Exhibition.
This collaboration means athletes get to compete in Glasgow’s SECC Arena Halls, showing off the art of submission wrestling in front of not just their peers but some of the industries’ biggest companies, speakers, fans and over 10’000 people happy to be entertained.
ADCC UK secretary Paul Williams Crossley said:
“We are so pleased to have put this together. The SFN guys are amazing to work with and have personal passion for Martial Arts which makes this partnership the perfect way to bring ADCC’s exciting rule sets to Scotland.”
The ADCC is the world’s biggest name for No Gi grappling or submission wrestling as it is also known. The rules make for a dynamic, action packed crowd pleasing event and more level playing field across the various grappling & wrestling disciplines. This means you see competitors from sports such as Sambo, BJJ (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu), Traditional wrestling, Judo & MMA.
At SFN EXPO 2016 you will see competitors split in 3 major categories with slight tweaks to the rules to maintain the highest levels of safety) these are beginners, intermediates and Professional. These are then subdivided by Juniors/Male/Female and weight classifications.
