Jiu Jitsu ChampionA massive congratulations to Harvey in 7 Lowe for competing in the European Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Championship, which was held in Birmingham on the 21st and 22nd November. Harvey won against all 3 of his challengers. He was particularly proud of his last fight which lasted all of 3 minutes and 45 seconds, where he forced his competitor to surrender using a technical hold which is called the 'Arm Bar'. His previous fights were won on points.
Harvey left the competition as a champion, winning a gold medal for the under 38kg weight (10-12 year olds). Harvey is currently the English Champion, British Champion, Naga UK Grappling British Champion, Naga Germany Grappling Champion and now European Junior Champion. He is ranked number 1 male junior competitor in the UK by the UKBJJA.
We all wish Harvey every success in future competitions.
