Both Instructors competed recently in the Premier BJJ Championship in Cork and managed to leave with some silverware after a day of mixed results.
Roger picked up a Bronze Medal in the Open Weight Brown Belt division losing a close semi-final match by advantages against Shane O’Donovan from Pedro Bessa BJJ in Cork.
Paul had only one match in the Featherweight (-67.5kg) Purple Belt Division and left with a win and a Gold Medal after an unfortunate injury to his opponent, Lucas from Berserkers team. Paul then went on to compete as on of the smallest competitors in the Absolute Division for a chance to win the cash prize. In his only match against Tom Bermingham he came up short, losing on a judge’s decision in a close fought match which was scored level at one advantage each. It was great to have Ciaran Maher there to record the action. Check out the video below[vimeo http://vimeo.com/78584478]
