Bristol Open

Results from the Bristol Open

The women were divided into u60kg and +60kg. Lisa won bronze in her weight division after fighting Marta Wyrzykowska, a Polish judo black belt, and going to a points decision.

She then competed in the female absolute and defeated Emma Baker, of Combat Academy, in the first round by points, won again on points in the semi final over Leoni Munslow, Pedro Bessa Academy, a +60kg category fighter. Lisa then met Marta again in the final of the absolute and after scoring the takedown with a single leg was caught with an armbar to come away with the silver medal, after three fights in 15 minutes - as the venue wanted people out as they had the room booked for someone else.

Leoni Munslow, Lisa and Ester.

Tonights spar class

Well Wednesday night we had an excellent spar class, going in three's and taking 3 minutes each to spar then rotate for an hour and a half non stop. Good fun to spar like that again and even better for the guys who miss Thursday and Saturday spar classes!

Also the memberships cards are ready and the first few guys have theirs, those who haven't brought in your passport photos bring them in and give them to Dave so you can get the card once you have paid.

Don't forget tonights spar class at Wallsend doesn't start until 6.30pm tonight as the room is booked out til then.

For those who wern't in on Monday nights class, Dave told us all the membership cards should hopefully here by Friday night for those who have brought there forms in and paid..

Don't forget to bring in a passport photo soon as it will be needed for your form, I'm going to go to the shops with my Gi and get one taken!

Class was awesome on Monday night with a great technique to take the back from guard which we all loved and is proven useful. I'll try and put a vid up soon!
