No Holds Barred: Clint Kingsbury, Larry Papadopoulos, Laura Edler-Hill, Rich Tado on FILA Grappling, Pankration, Amateur MMA World Championship 

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Clint Kingsbury, Larry Papadopoulos, Laura Edler-Hill, and Rich Tado to sum up the 2012 FILA senior World Grappling, Pankration, and Amateur MMA Championship. This event was held November 15-18 at the Hala Widowiskowo Sportowa in Skala, Poland, near Krakow. We spoke with them in a roundtable discussion a few hours after the conclusion of the event.

Clint Kingsbury works for the Canadian Amateur Wrestling Association (Wrestling Canada Lutte) as Domestic Development Manager and is a FILA representative.

Larry Papadopoulos of Australia is a former Pancrase and Shooto fighter, currently runs and is an instructor at the Boxing Works gym in Darlinghurst, and is a FILA representative.

Laura Edler-Hill is the Illinois representative of the USA Federation of Pankration Athlima and Amateur MMA, and a FILA referee.

Rich Tado is director and head coach of the Old School Wrestling Training Center in Huntley, Illinois, an assistant wrestling coach at Harper College in Palatine, Illinois, and a FILA referee.

"Being involved with FILA grappling and non-Olympic styles since 2007-2008, probably the highlight that I could say that I saw at this event was really the growth and development of the athletes, coaches, referees, from day one till now," said Clint Kingsbury in this discussion. "The number of countries. The camaraderie. The fact that the event was put on really geared towards the high-profileness of these athletes. We had world team members from all over the world. Some of them were big names, stars in wrestling and jiu-jitsu and judo. This is what FILA is all about, bringing opportunity to athletes, and that's why I'm involved."

The 2013 edition of this event is scheduled for June 12-15, 2013, at the Budweiser Gardens in London, Ontario, Canada.
