Regular interclubs will be held at the club covering BJJ, MMA and No Gi, as well as seminars with leading BJJ and MMA fighters and coaches throughout the year.
We can now hit the new year with a set up to rival that of any MMA gym in the UK and I will be dipping into my contacts book to bring the best people around to the gym. The facilities are there for all Combat Base members and all my friends from the BJJ and MMA community worldwide.
Let the fun begin!!

Props to Graham Batin and Keith Dooley from http://www.empirefightshop.com/ for sponsoring the event.
Fight of the day on my mat was between Bebbington BJJ and RGA Bucks, an action packed fight that saw the RGA Bucks way up on points, dominating the fight, who found himself tapping out with one second on the clock! That's BJJ guys!!
Bebbington BJJ took the team trophy and will be returning next year to defend their silverware and let's hope Leicester SHoot return next year and make a challenge for the cup and bragging rights.
After the UMA event, I travelled down to Hereford and stayed overnight at Dave Coles's, in readiment for the Hereford Open V, which was a white belt only event; there was a healthy number of juniors competing and super talented they are, all fighting their hearts out.
Had a great day on the mats refereeing some great matches, these guys really gave it 100% and fought hard throughout the day; Greg 'Creely' Creel's brother made an impressive show of himself , winning his division and special mention goes to SBG South West duo of Gareth Millar and Paul Johnson, who travelled up from Plymouth and competed at the UMA event, with Gareth taking gold and Paul the bronze, before heading to Hereford and walking away with silver medals apiece. Now that's dedication!
And so an action packed 2010 comes to an end; with 2011 already bursting at the seams with gi and no gi comps, it looks like another busy year for the Fighting Photographer, both as a referee and a competitor!
