Pupils dominate at Jiu Jitsu International Competition

2017-04-13T20:29:16+00:00 August 2nd, 2016|
Pupils from Bradford Grammar School (BGS) enjoyed success at international level when they travelled to Canada to compete at the recent Jiu Jitsu Foundation 2016 Internationals held in Collingwood, Ontario.

The event, held every three years, is a week-long gathering of Jiu Jitsu clubs from all over the world that includes specialised training seminars under the top worldwide instructors of the art, grading examinations, competitions and social events. This year competitors gathered from as far afield as New Zealand, South Africa, Europe, Argentina as well as Canada and the USA.

In the ‘Junior Demonstration Competition’ BGS pupil Lewis Day, 16 from Bingley, took first place, and Tom Deacon, age 11 from Shipley, claimed second.

Tom also took part in the ‘Junior Team Demonstration’ competition along with Sam Bryan, age 11 from Bingley and Haris Sultan, age 14 from Pudsey. The team came 2nd overall.

The demonstration competition gives the pupils an opportunity to display their talents and skills in Shorinji Kan Jiu Jitsu on the international stage. Young teams are on display throwing, locking and weapons defence skills as well as team work and coordination.

Bradford Jiu Jitsu Club train in the senior gym at BGS every Saturday morning and welcome all new members who would like to learn a martial art for self-defence and fitness.
