WELCOME TO NZ GRAPPLER
New Zealand Grappler aims to provide a positive and safe environment for New Zealand grapplers of all ages to test their hard earned skills.
With very few competition venues available within New Zealand, we want to provide a regular tournament circuit for grapplers needing more experience before moving on to the next level. Our competitions are fair and well run, always considering the competitor’s sake above all. We always welcome feedback that will help improve our future events.
