Congratulations to Tiger Muay Thai and MMA who took 2nd place during the Nogi Thailand Open Grappling Tournament.  The trophy is the third year in a row that TMT has placed either first or second during the Nogi day of competition.Gi Instructor Andrew Gardineer took over as head coach scoring two silvers.

Noticeably missing from this years team were head coach Ray Elbe (conducting a seminar in Mumbai India) as well as other standout competitors; Claire Haigh, Andreas Hesselback, Wiktor Svennson, Ngoo Ditty, and Brayden Summers.  With the addition of those grapplers TMT would have had a good chance at taking home the first place trophy again in 2010.
