29/01/2013: Grappling update from Rory McDonell Bill Cooley competed at the Grapplers Quest North American Championship where he won a gold medal. He also recently competed at the Ascension BJJ Open tournament where he won another gold, and scored his first submission win with a modified choke! Bill has been working very hard, and is starting to become dangerous. He is looking to compete a lot this year, and we're excited about more medals, and hopefully more submissions. He is joined by Drury Wrestling alumni Ranbir Hans, Chicklets "Adam" Scott, Luke Campbell, and Justin Billingham, as wrestlers who are doing some training at Para Bellum MMA and applying their skill set to new combat sports.
The Junior Dynamo Wrestling Club was created as an offshoot of the Drury Wrestling program, offering a recreational program for elementary school students. Practices include instructions in Olympic freestyle wrestling and wrestling related games and drills. Members also have the opportunity to participate in competitions throughout the year.
In November of 1984 the new coach Larry Jaroslawski took over the winning reigns from the original team founder Tom Mooney. The Drury wrestling team quietly climbed out of the Halton basement for the first time in history. A year later at the Halton Championships they surprised everyone but themselves by capturing the team silver medal.
