After some good competition training the team were feeling confident and for some of them it was their first competition
We took eight competitors in total and 3 other academies were taking part, this would be a good test for the Triccs kids and also give them a chance to utilise their skills
Our youngest competitor Toran won his first fight with a “cross collar” choke, he then went into the final with a strong competitor in which he lost but picked up the “Silver Medal”
Enoch in his first competition surprised us all with winning his first 2 fights with a big points victory and then winning the final with a beautiful “arm bar”, first Gold!!!!
Lena just proved how good she was on the day; she was up against 3 boys which did not bother her at all. She submitted her 2 opponents and won the final with slick “arm bar”, second Gold !!
Now time for Nathan who saw younger bother Enoch win gold, he did the family proud by submitting all his opponents and showed how confident he is with his “guard” game. Nathan wins our Third Gold!
Otis, Micah & Andre all competing in the same bracket!!!!
Andre come up against his team mate Micah winning by points, Otis playing guard in first2 minutes and then attempted a “rear naked choke” , Otis surprisingly let go as he thought the opponent “tapped”, we restarted in same position and Otis put a triangle choke on the opponent to which he tapped. Final Andre v Otis which was very tight and Otis won by slight point’s advantage.
Gold & Silver!!!!
Last person to compete was Charlie in his third competition and itching to win Gold again.
Superb first fight submitting opponent in with an “arm triangle”, second fight was very classy confusing his opponent with quick transitions and them securing a tight “arm bar”. Final, great takedown and then submitted opponent with an “arm bar”.
Medal Tally :
5 Gold's & 1 Silver
The kids showed they were all team players, great commitment and sportsmanship.
