Jiu Jitsu in Abertillery
On the 5th June myself and Mr Greenwood took the Jiu Jitsu team to compete in the Welsh kids BJJ league at Abertillery.
It was a great event with some great match ups, everyone did themselves proud.
We had gold, silver and bronze medals in the Weight Category and the same in the Absolute Category The performance of the day goes firstly to Codie who after still only training for a few weeks was hugely disappointed after losing his first match, he dusted himself off and dominated someone who on paper should have been able to beat him easily securing his first medal.
Secondly Joe who after meeting some skilled opponents in his weight category and getting bronze he then competed multiple times in the open weight in quick succession defeating someone who weighed over 30 Kg more than him, also proving he can Judo throw someone who weighs more than 100Kg which is impressive to say the least.
On to the next one!!
