Corben Cameron Has a Passion For Martial
Corben Cameron has an absolute passion
for martial art grappling. The elevenyear-
old Corben, a grade 6 Viscount Alexander
student has been training 5 times per week for
the past 4 years at Cornwall MMA, with each
session being either 1 or 1 ½ hrs long.
Corben, who trains in various forms of grappling,
currently holds an orange belt in Judo and has
set himself a goal of one day earning a Black
belt in that discipline. Corben has been quite
successful so far in the martial arts, having won
a Cornwall Lions Club “Athlete of the year”
award in his sport.
Corben recently competed
in the Grappling Industries jiu-jitsu tournament
held at Ryerson University in Toronto. This
very large event hosted well over one thousand
competitors from as far away as Michigan.
Corben competed in two separate divisions,
gi, and no gi grappling. These divisions were
a gruelling round-robin format where each
competitor fights one two-minute round match
against each individual in the division. The
eventual winner is determined not by the number
of victories, but by the total number of points
accumulated in the tournament. Cornwall MMA Judo and wrestling instructor Trevor
Leroux was very impressed with Corben’s
performance at the tournament.
