Grapplers Quest Champions Make Up 33% of 2011 ADCC Current Line-up – World’s Best Must Win THE QUEST!

Grapplers Quest Champions Make Up 33% of 2011 ADCC Current Line-up, most of them homegrown on our mats, the same mats we all compete on. Don’t deny it, the World’s Best Must Win THE QUEST – CBJJ started No-Gi in 2007, ADCC and Grapplers Quest started no-gi tournaments only in 1998, don’t forget the legacy, the grassroots effort or the true timeline and history of Grappling. Even NAGA started in 1999, after Grapplers Quest 😉 – Kipp Kollar was a hired referee at my first event in April 1998.
