MANY NOTES OF GRATITUDE FOR 2015 PAN PACS

Just a few...
Good Morning,
Just a quick note to let you guys know we thought you did an awesome job this past weekend at the Pan Pacs.
We flew over from Perth for the event and my kids participated and had a great time.
Appreciate all of the hard work the organisers put into the event, we'll definitely be attending again next year.
Cheers,
Darren

Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our first PanPacs.  Really well run competition, high level of skill, but also great comaraderie shown.  Our boy (Brandon Meyer) had a wonderful experience, as did the other competitor from our club (Clinton Davies a.k.a. The Blind Grappler).  We hope to make the trip again from NZ next year.

Thanks again

Mike Meyer

JUNIOR JIU JITSU UNFAIRLY CATEGORISED

Recently Junior Jiu Jitsu was unfairly linked to MMA, Boxing and Kick Boxing in the media.

Concerns were raised with knocks and impacts to the head of Juniors. Jiu Jitsu was mentioned alongside MMA, Boxing and Kick Boxing unfairly. The organisation making the claims should have investigated more appropriate research into Jiu Jitsu and the potential of knocks and impacts to the head. Since Jiu Jitsu competition began in Australia in 1995 we have no knowledge of any junior in receipt of any serious knock or impact to the head. There have been hundreds of competitions held since 1995 with over 40 registered in 2015.

We would like to reassure our members that while injuries including knocks and impacts to the head are always a possibility in every contact sport, Jiu Jitsu has a remarkable record of low occurrence.
