I'm over in the UK on holidays at the moment and managed to find a local grappling tournament to have a roll around in. One of the guys I rolled with who incidentally entered his own division and the division above his weight is totally blind. He had to be led on to the mat and we started from a clinch position. Once the grapple started he was pretty competitive, had pretty good technique and fantastic body awareness.
Quite a humbling experience. Whenever I'm feeling too sore, too old or too tired he is definitely who I am going to think of for inspiration.
Anyway next roll will be in Belfast where I've found a couple of guys to roll with.
p.s. gidday Robbo, Stewie and Michael (who has managed to get a grapple in Iceland)
