Strong performances at Kleos Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competition at the High Wycombe Judo centre – with Ben Gracie picking up a silver medal in a stacked division.
Entering his first BJJ competition, Ben (in the white Gi) had a total of four fights, submitting his first two opponents. In his first fight he finished his opponent with a head and arm triangle choke, the second opponent was also choked out and in his third fight he heavily dominated his opponent to win by a very substantial number of points.
Ben lost the final after a gritty performance but took home silver in a big division.
Richard Mackie (in the black Gi) also put in a strong performance – winning his first competition fight – in a big division.
Rich lost his first fight but recovered quickly and with a strong and determined mind, dominated his second opponent to take a points victory.
Richard’s third fight was a stand out fight in the division – truly exciting with both fighters having periods of positional dominance. Rich lost the fight narrowly, on points but put in a very strong performance against a clearly experienced competitor.
