Jui Jitsu ChampionOn Sunday 20th November Harvey travelled to Wolverhampton to compete at the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu European Championships. This is the biggest junior competition in Europe, with competitors from 18 different countries, all fighting for the right to be European champion. Harvey is the current European junior Champion and so all eyes were focussed on him as all the competitors were looking to take away his title. Harvey managed to win all his fi ghts in under 1 minute, and all via submission holds, to retain his title as the European Junior Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Champion. He was also presented with his new belt on the podium during the awards ceremony.
This is a fantastic achievement for Harvey, and is down to his hard work and dedication to his training (he currently trains 14 hours a week1!).
Congratulations Harvey, we hope you have even more success in the future.
