Jiddu's golden weekend!

HUGE congrats to Jiddu Bastos, one of the coaches here in Al Ain, who competed at the Emirates Super Cup competition at the weekend in Abu Dhabi and came away with four gold medals.  Jiddu entered the no gi comp on the Saturday and won his weight bracket (+92K) and took gold in the absolute and repeated the feat the next day in the gi event, bagging gold in the +92K bracket and gold again in the Absolute division.

Jiddu with the bling!

A magnificent achievement from Jiddu, who was over the moon at the end of the weekend and who wouldn't be with four gold medals in two days.  Jiddu has trained hard with the rest of the guys and has been duly rewarded for his efforts.

Massive thanks to Alexandre 'Baby' Carvalho for taking the time in preparing all the guys for the competition, with competition specific training for the last six weeks; everyone has benefitted from the training and all have improved from the hardcore sessions.

Next competition is in January 2013 - expect more gold!
