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.

Schedule for the 2015 NO GI REGIONALS AUCKLAND is now ready to review. We will follow the Bullpen format for weigh ins. Weigh ins for adults will occur when the division is called to the bullpen. Once in the bullpen, competitors are NOT allowed to leave until they have completed competing in their division. We will have the order of the division call out and mat assignment posted Saturday morning at the event. All divisions will be double elimination. Please submit all change requests by 5pm Friday 6th November. If you are on this list, and you cannot compete, you must let us know by 5pm Friday otherwise you are still liable for the registration fee.
