Glasgow Open in pictures.......

Huge thanks to organiser James Mc Intyre and his army of helpers who hosted the Glasgow Open Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Championships at the weekend; it was a good opportunity to test myself in my first brown belt match. The event is the biggest on the Scottish calendar and this year it attracted 200 competitors, which shows the scene is growing from strength to strength.

The level of jiu jitsu was very impressive and of a high technical standard in both the gi and no gi divisions and across all age brackets. Shouts out to Mark Taylor from Team Sukata who made the long journey up to compete and came away with some bling, as well as catching up with my old buddy Trevor Mitchell and Marty Young from Aberdeen and to everyone else I met on the day.
