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.

Focussed and ready for his first ever BJJ fight.

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 was the only competitor to submit his opponents in the early stages of his division..

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.
