Welcome to the ECJJA Blog!
We had a great weekend at the IBJJF Spanish Nationals. With a squad of only 9 competitors we took 7 Golds, 1 Silver and 2 Bronze, finishing 4th in the overall team standings. All of the coaching staff managed to take gold in their divisions and with several of our other competitors winning and medalling in their divisions too. Caroline managed to win double gold (weight and open weight) in her gi divisions and Bryn and Ffion, the head coaches of our Cardiff affiliate, went back to Wales with 3 gold medals and a silver between them. We can’t wait for the London Open in October when we bring our entire squad with the aim of taking the team title home to our HQ in Monkstown!
