Students of Tiger Schulmann’s Mixed Martial Arts in Wayne had a very successful outing at the Challenge of Champions this past weekend. Twice a year, every June and December the mats are rolled out and the competition begins. Throughout the entire day, children as young as 5 and adults well into their 40’s and 50’s put on the sparring and grappling gear and go toe to toe for Challenge of Champions Gold!
Wayne Martial Arts prepares you or your child for school and life!
There are three events held at the event. Grappling, Kickboxing and MMA. Grappling is the largest and fastest growing activity in the whole country right now! Basically ground fighting, grappling or Jujitsu, is trying to maintain a dominant position over your opponent. For kids 9 years old and up as well as adults, submission are also involved which when applied correctly can end a match very quickly.
Winners from the Wayne Martial Arts school in the grappling events are Marco Alarcon, 1st Place; Zachary DiGidio, 3rd; Alex Gallipoli, 1st; Elise Hartman, 1st; Oscar Hernandez, 3rd; Travis Leal, 3rd, Aidan Liwanag, 2nd; Colby Montaina, 1st; Javier Perez, 3rd; Gary Pranzo, 1st; Al Rech, 3rd; Alexis Rech, 1st and Attila Valy, 1st place each in their respective divisions.
The other two events, kickboxing and MMA involve two competitors wearing complete protective sparring gear vying to win the fight by landing more effective punches and kicks than their opponent. In the MMA competition participants can actually take their opponents to the ground and continue the fight there.
