Well done Adam Metcalf and Brett Grasso for putting on a great BJJ comp at the Defensive Arts Academy at Bellvue yesterday. The comp had a great atmosphere and everybody had a lot of fun, can't wait for the next one! A big thanks to Lance Johnson from DAA for hosting the event and good luck with your new school, your matts are awesome.
Sam Moland fought really well against a senior opponant who out-weighed him by nearly 10 kilos. Sam was leading 4 / nil for 4 minutes and 55 seconds and was beaten in the closing seconds by a guard pass and top mount. Not bad for 66kg and only a few lessons hey Sammo! Look out BJJ world!
Colin Luthwood placed 3rd in his division winning his first fight after a split decision and just loosing his second to a four stripe and loved every minute of it.
BJJ is a fast growing sport and after seeing the fights on the weekend its no surprise that so many martial arts schools around the world are jumping on the band wagon.
