Medal success for Combat Base UK!

Back from a fantastic day of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Stoke, where Jim Mc Sherry hosted the UMA NGB BJJ Championships; Combat Base clubs from Bolton, Heywood, Runcorn and Dewsbury came together and flew the flag for Combat Base UK and battled it out for the prestigious team trophy.

Bagging 5 gold, 7 silver and 2 bronze medals, a formidable achievement in itself, alas was not enough to earn the bragging rights, only a very credible third place. First place was taken by Gracie Barra Lagarto Sheffield, with Team Sukata taking second place, with some superb jiu jitsu matches from all clubs concerned.

There will be a huge picture gallery online from the UMA over the weekend, which will be posted on here as soon as its live.

Congrats to all Combat Base players who fought valiantly and with great sportsmanship, as well as everyone else on the day, it was a great day to referee some quality jiu jitsu, as well as meeting up with all my good friends and making some new ones on the day as well.

Shouts out to Gary Savage, Scott Pickering and Thomas Hanlon from Team Suakata, the referees and table officials for doing a great job all day and to Jim Mc Sherry in arranging a superb tournament and to everyone else I spoke to during the day :)
