Referee #8 for Grappling Industries Toronto July 20!
21 Referees in 21 Days:
Referee #8 is a known competitor in Ontario and Quebec for his recent dominance in the last 2 years. #8 is a BJJ Brown Belt from Gracie Humaita and is one of Grappling Industries’ sponsored fighters, Mohammed Amir Yafawi.
We at Grappling Industries have grown a close relationship with who some call King Kong because of his build and aggressive style. Mr. Yafawi has won 3 Grappling Industries’ Grand Prize Trips as well has refereed at 2 Grappling Industries Toronto tournaments. We also announced our sponsorship of Mr. Yafawi this summer when there was little doubt left about the relationship we could build together moving forward.
The thing about Mr. Yafawi is this, he is widely respected because of the obstacles he has overcome in life to be with us today. He is truly an inspiration on and off the mats. He has refereed at Grappling Industries like mentioned as well as in Ontario for the OJA and OGA. There is little doubt of his grappling skill and knowledge as a competitor and as a referee.
