The Titletown MMA Academy's two shining stars competed at the Combat Corner Grappling Championship Vol 17 on Sept 17th, 2016. Shalyn entered her first grappling tournament, and placed 2nd both in her No-Gi and Gi division. Super proud of her, as she has been putting in a lot of work, and with the support of her father Benny, rarely missed out on practice. What mattered most for us though, was she had fun at her first tournament, and it looks like she did!
Titletown MMA Academy's Lillian did an amazing job as always. As she's consistently placed in the top 3 in all her tournaments. Often she's had to compete at a higher weight, older age, or even against the boys division. But this never deters her as she's always been working hard at the gym and always improving. Her highlight is defeating a 28 year old blue belt, via arm bar, along with no points being scored against her during the tournament. Lillian placed 1st both in her No-Gi and Gi division, and we look forward to a potential pankration fight for her in the future!
As always a great tournament hosted by Combat Corner, and we look forward to the next and many more.
