No Holds Barred: Riccardo Ammendolia on 2012 ADCC North American Championships 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Riccardo Ammendolia, board director of ADCC North America, about the 2012 ADCC North American Championships.

The 2012 ADCC North American Championships will take place Sunday, October 14, at the Mira Mesa High School, 10510 Reagan Road, in San Diego, California. The winners in each of the five men's weight divisions will receive an official invite to the 2013 ADCC Submission Fighting World Championships. Next year there will be another ADCC North American Championships, which will serve as a qualifying event for the 2013 ADCC Worlds for both men and women.

We spoke with Riccardo Ammendolia by Skype Tuesday about the 2012 ADCC North American Championships and the significance of this event.

"This is the North American Championship for 2012. The ADCC World Federation wants there to be championships throughout the world," said Riccardo Ammendolia in this interview. "The benefits that the North American champions will receive is that they receive the first invites to represent North America in the upcoming ADCC World Championship."

We also discussed the rules of this event which encourage participation from athletes in all styles of grappling, the coming establishment of rankings by ADCC, and more.

No Holds Barred: Coach George Hero on Midwood Wrestling Exhibition 2012 


On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Coach George Hero, the legendary coach and founder of the Midwood High School wrestling team in Brooklyn, New York.

The 54-year-old Coach Hero will once again be going to the mat himself, as he takes on NYU wrestler John Klein under NCAA rules in the main event of the Midwood Wrestling Exhibition 2012.

The Midwood Wrestling Exhibition 2012 takes place Saturday, October 13, at Midwood High School at 2839 Bedford Avenue, in Brooklyn, New York, in the Campus Road Gymnasium, from 10 AM to 3 PM. There will also be numerous matches featuring current and alumni wrestlers from Midwood High School and other schools and colleges who will compete under folkstyle, freestyle, and Greco-Roman rules.

We spoke with Coach Hero by phone Monday night.

"The whole idea behind this, behind all the exhibitions that we do, is basically exposing the public at large to real wrestling. That's the purpose of it," he said in this interview.

Besides discussing this event itself, we addressed his continuing to wrestle at age 54, the need for the people running wrestling to advertise and market the sport better than they are doing now, and much more.
