Our BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) academy from Sydney won 7 gold and 2 bronze medals at the Newcastle BJJ Open on 4th November. We had 1 adult and 6 kids compete.
Frances Bavaro won all 4 of her matches and won double gold in the female blue belt divisions. In the kids divisions Axyl Howie (Double), Dante Barbanera, Jake Lapi and Natasha Iacono won gold and Damian Iacono and Emma Hunt won bronze.
Team Machado also came second overall in the Kids team trophy and 3rd in the Adults team trophy.
Big thank you to coaches Matthew Hunt and Frances Bavaro for being in the corner as Head Coach Anthony Perosh was away holding gradings at an affiliate academy.
