Evolve No Gi Grappling Event - Salford

Rounded off a great weekend for Combat Base Bolton at the Evolve No Gi Grappling event, held in Salford earlier today; Dan Fisher and his team ran a smoothly ran event, super chilled atmosphere, running over two mats.
With my partner in crime Chris Brown
The athletes competed at beginner and intermediate level and all fighters showed great technique, skill and great sportsmanship and it was nice to catch up with a number of my friends from the no gi circuit.

Three students entered and it was a silver medal for Krishnan Chauhan in his first ever comp, an awesome achievement and a great start for his competition career; Lee Jones and Brendan Gallagher also competed, fought like lions and narrowly missed out on medals, but came away with competition mat time experience and plenty to work on at the club next week.
YT, Brett Mc Dermott and Adam Teh
As a coach, I couldn't be happier with the result from both comps this weekend, everything we've been drilling in class surfaced at both comps, so I must be doing something right :)

Shouts out to Chris Brown, Adam Teh, Brett Mc Dermott, Phil Woods and Simon and Tom from 10th Planet Grimbsy, an absolute pleasure to meet you all, as always :)

Upcoming events in August are the Grab and Pull No Gi in Manchester, Fighting Labs No Gi in Manchester and the UMA Gi event in Derby, so plenty to be getting on with.

Hard work and drilling starts 6pm tomorrow sharp - will you be there??
