On the 21st of August a team of 10 students from the Axis UK academy in Cambridge travelled down to the Brighton BJJ Open to compete. For many of the students this was their first ever jiu jitsu competition. Everyone performed well in their matches, especially as some had only been training just a few weeks!

Three students won medals: 'Big' Eddie Finlay took silver in the Adult White belt Ultra-Heavy division, Jon Nicholson took gold in the Adult Blue belt Super-Featherweight division, and Stefan Mynch took bronze in the Adult White belt Heavyweight.
