Last weekend four students from Gracie Barra Havering travelled to Newquay to compete in the Newquay BJJ Open.
Students Craig Young, Vinnie Ebbrell, Chris Preston and Tony Scrdeen made the trip with Tony attending to show support.
Chris Preston won gold in the Middle weight division beating all opponents convincingly. This is the second competition for Chris and represents his second gold medal. What a great start to his BJJ competitive career at the white belt level.
Vinnie Ebbrell won bronze in a stacked division at blue belt feather weight. He fought 5 matches to earn his well sort after bronze medal.
Craig fought very hard and stayed very active in all of his matches. Craig moved up a weight category to middle weight and was fighting much larger opponents. He missed out on a medal but remains very happy with his performance in what was a tough middle weight division.
