Congratulations guys!

nice job

what was your take on the tournament organisationally Nolan?

Were you ticked off that Kipp spoiled the Napao/Crocop fight for everyone there?

much respect for team LK always a good showing from your guys, good grapplers.

TTT for Lionkill

I think it was very organized.
I mean yeah it sucked i didnt fight til 10 pm,But it wasnt due to unorganization,it was due to the large number of competitors.
They need to do kids on a seperate day.


yeah cait wait for wildwood when they actually split kids and adults. Great venue with bathrooms this time lol. Hectic event on sat but for what they were given you cant really blame them. Anyone know the final fighter count?

"I mean yeah it sucked i didnt fight til 10 pm"

Holy crap!!!!

ttt nice

Bathrooms DID suck.I mean girls always have a huge line waiting to use the bathroom, but this time the guys line was ridiculous too.

Def need to give kids/teens there own day.

^^Will know hopefully within the week.^^
