What a jam packed Month of September for the Academy

There have been so many exciting accomplishments and additions to the club this month.


Awards and Recognition:

We competed in our very first Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competition.

Andreea Zaharia, Charisma Taylor, and Sebastian Ortiz all stepped up to the challenge and they managed a haul of 2 golds & 3 Bronze.


Congratulations to Andreea who officially won the clubs first ever Gold Medal.

Off the back of her performance, and the many years of hard training, Andreea was also presented with her Blue belt from instructor Nic Barker. Well done!! A very well deserved promotion.
