UMA matches on You Tube!!

One from each team member!

UMA/FILA event yesterday!!

Had a very good day out in Derby supporting Jim and Ebe on a unique day for grappling events, running two events side by side. It was a great chance to see top level grapplers going head to head and seeing what it takes to reach the next level and for the elite grapplers and coaches a chance to send their juniors into battle on the UMA mats and see the standard at this event.

Overall, received lost of positive feedback from coaches and competitors and was made extremely proud of my students Leroy, Gaz and Jim who all medalled on the day and displayed excellent sportsmanship and some polished grappling skills - well done lads!!

Big shout to Ben 'I'll eat all the biscuits and toffees on the judges desks' Ogunby for taking us down and helping out on the day and getting himself back in time for his tea!!
