On Saturday the 15th of June 6 Maromba South BJJers made the trip to Launceston for a seminar with our head coach Thiago Stefanutti. Thiago took us through some great sweep and submission options from guard, we followed this by participating in the grading of four of BJJTAZ family to blue belt. Congrats to Jordan, Blake, John and Nick.
Later that night we attended the Valor 1 year anniversary event and watched BJJTAZ blue belt Nick "venom" Denholm fight in the welter weight title tournament. Nick over came adversity early on from a powerful opponent to come back and take the submission victory. Unfortunately Nick was defeated by a guillotine choke in the final, but still put in a very gutsy performance against a skilled purple belt opponent.
We are also extremely proud of our own "super" Steven Maxwell who claimed a submission victory on round 1 in his 2nd MMA fight after only a few lessons in bjj. Great stuff Maxi!
We well have photos of the seminar up soon.
