Dave vs Kevin Chan

"On the sunday, the Brown Belts fought in two divisions, Lightweight (under 70kg) and Heavyweight (over 70kg) and both saw some very seasoned fighters in action. The lightweights featured 4 Gracie Barra grapplers (Luiz Tosta, Kevin Chan, Paul Bridges and Dave Elliott) and one lone BTT representative, James Duncalf. Tosta was clear favourite, having taken silver and gold in the Pan American championships in the past 2 years, but he was pushed to the limit by first Bridges, who showed impressive poise and takedown skill and then Elliott, absent from competition for some time, but seemingly well practised at leg-locks. Elliott submitted Kevin Chan with a knee bar in his first match and almost caught the Mario Reis student here with a toehold in the final. Tosta’s experience (and his seemingly rubber ankles and knees) proved telling and he had another medal to add to his collection."

Saturday, May 19, 2007


Neil won his first three fights by substantial amount on points in the lightweight under 76kg category, he was out-pointed in the semi final and bronze fight off making him fourth in a very stacked category of over forty entrants.

Dan won his first two fights in the middle weight under 82kg category, the first by triangle, (I think) but went out in the quarter finals.

Lisa won the Under 58kg category getting a gold medal on points, and then fought in the absolute beating a heavier (64kg) opponent before forfeiting the final to take silver.

Ian has loads of photos so I'm sure he'll put loads on the site.

Good luck to all competing on Sunday - Dave, Ian, Lee, Gav, James, Brian and Adam, kick ass!
