8 members of the Warriors Grappling Academy traveled to Bedford, for the British Sombo trials. Bradley Belsey, Casey Belsey,Ashley Costa and Jamie Marzetti all won their weight groups and are now part of the British Sombo team to compete in the World Championships in November. Coach John Clarke said "It was a really hard competition, with many great fighters from all over England competing for their place in the British team. Out of the 8 places up for grabs, 4 of them were taken from my club and that is amazing. I am so proud of all of the lads, they did them selves and the club proud. Well done.
"The star of the day had to be Jamie, who not only won 3 golds, but one of them was in the o82 open. Jamie himself only weighs 82kg and he fought 2 lads who were over 120kg, that takes some doing."
