I think we can all agree it was a long, hot and eventful summer. March is now watching us roll into Autumn with some more NoGi news at your favourite club, Bucklands Beach BJJ & MMA!
Our team took a trip down to the NoGi regionals at the end of last month and as always, they did amazingly! With only twelve entries (and just 18 months since club’s inception), Bucklands Beach BJJ came 10th out of over 50 participating clubs.
Some really tough battles and lots of learning, regardless of the wins or losses! Our special mentions go to Alicia, Cail and Codie, who all took gold in their respective divisions. This is the second gold in two competitions for all three competitors, so onwards and upwards!
A massive shoutout also to our assistant instructor Ryan, who also won silver at the purple belt division (despite still being a blue belt whose just 17 years old). Massive thanks to the Oliver MMA team and all of the supporting clubs and officials, who made this yet another top event which was not to be missed.
We’re looking forward to the Nationals coming up on the 6th of April… Let us know if you’ll be joining us!
As we continue to grow, we decided to add additional MMA & NoGi classes, on both Monday and Wednesday! These classes will also have a mix of Sambo and Wrestling Drills for those that would like to expand their defensive skillset, whilst wanting to push themselves that bit harder on top of the Jiu Jitsu they know and already love.
Growing yoga classes
In other club-related news, the yoga classes have been an effective way to relax and stretch mid week with our amazing instructor Tash. We have a diverse mix of men and woman attending these yoga classes, who get to experience an amazing view overlooking Bucklands Beach where the sunset lies. As the cooler months start to arrive, is there a better location to unwind? Really, we’re asking…
We always enjoy keeping you updated and we are so happy with the progress everyone is making. As always, we will keep you posted with the latest news next month!
