Great month for Bridgwater Jujitsu team
8:00am Friday 4th October 2013 in Somerset Sport
SEPTEMBER has been a great month for the KJ2 Bridgwater Brazilian Jujitsu team.
The team, who compete under affiliation to Pedro Bessa, competed in the Hereford Open and the British nogi open.
A team of six travelled to Hereford, one of the toughest BJJ competitions in the UK.
Luke Green, Dales Challis, Milos Vojtek and Guy Porter all had tough fights, gaining wins and losses, but not being placed overall.
Guy had a particularly tough time fighting three opponents in a row – despite winning his second fight with a very technical choke, his energy ran out on the third contest.
Lauren Butler, the only woman in the team, had some tough opponents and following some skilled takedowns she won the silver.
After only a year training in BJJ, Jordan Kirk’s excellent wrestling skills again shone through – despite a tough category and some very hard fought rounds, a combination of takedowns and submissions earned him gold.
