...is there a simple answer to these questions; What is the best thing to consume prior to a 2 hour grappling training session to give us sustainable energy levels and maximize our workouts and when should we consume it? What is the best thing to consume post grappling to help with recovery, to get the most out of our workouts (ie; protein to build muscle?) and to be prepare or bodies for the next day?

well dont expect the supplements to have any magic effects.
A banana is good, has some carbs, and potassium (which is something you can "feel" a difference from).

If you want to go really hardcore, Id suggest adding some taurine, beta-alanine, creatine, l-citrulline, caffeine, vit b12, arginine, tyrosine. It wont be worth the money though :)

post workout, well, from the past two years Ive learned that if you keep a good diet consistently, no post workout recovery drink will make any significant difference. You see, protein synthesis takes hours after you have eaten. So if you eat 4-5 times a day spread out quite evenly, you never will go into a catabolic state... hence, no use for any supplementation to fix anything - the food does all the work itself.
