NW BJJ Open - Thornton, Cleveleys

Had a great day out with the lads, refereeing and coaching at Gus Oliveira's BJJ comp; was nice to meet up with fellow Combat Base coach Steve Muckle and after a lot of hard matches, Lee James took his second gold in consecutive comps, tapping out a game and lively Dave Irvine with a clock choke - Parabens!

Young Lewis Shaw, aged 13 years, epitomised the warrior spirit by having a field day on the mats with five matches, competing way above his age in the adults and in the juveniles under 15 bracket, gaining tons of mat time and experience throughout the day.

Finally met Liam Wandi from the BJJ Labs in Manchester and had a good chat and reffed his matches and after the event, had a well earned drink with the lads and toasted Gary Savage's well deserved recent promotion to black belt.

Thanks to Gus for running the event and letting me ref and to all the guys that competed, without you there won't be any events to ref :) To everyone else I met on the day, it was nice to see you all, here's to the next comp!
