Awards were also presented to students for Best Takedowns, Most Technical, Best Partner and Best Sportsman. Given the level of talent that the students have demonstrated, it was very hard for the coaches to decide on which students to present the coveted awards to and we created a Special Merit category to recognise their improvement in all areas of BJJ as well as demonstrating the TGA's values of respect and hard work. Each award comes with a private class with one of TGA's instructors to help work on a special technique to take their game to the next level. 

We're so proud of all the students who competed and are very grateful to be their guides on their BJJ journey. We can't wait to see what they'll surprise us with next.
