Congrats to Scrambler Ben Dyson who won the ‘No Guts, No Glory’ invitational last weekend.
Ben is clearing up on the UK competition scene at the moment with wins at the Newaza Challenge UK, Polaris 3 and now this event. Ben trains out of Ippon gym in Bournemouth and he is a Roy Dean brown belt.
We’re looking forward to seeing him continue his run of competition success in the near future.
Once again we are looking forward to sponsoring Polaris 4 with their upcoming show on the 29th October 2016. This will be held at the Lighthouse in Poole, Dorset, UK and will feature some of the best grapplers in the world competing in a supermatch format.
The first announced match is between the feared ‘Ashikan Judan’ Masakazu Imanari and Eddie Bravo’s first black belt; Denny Prokopos. This is sure to be an exciting match and we can’t wait to see some of the rest of the lineup planned.
You can find out more about Polaris by following them on Facebook, Instagram and watch some of the previous events on YouTube.
We’re looking forward to getting these bad boys in stock very shortly.
The black standard issue is identical to the white standard issue with the same patch pack. Depending on how popular it is we may make different colourways in the future! IBJJF legal dependant on where the patches are placed.
The navy athlete 2 is made to the same specification as the other athlete’s and is a lightweight but durable gi ideal for competing in, and it’s IBJJF legal!
Scrambler and Roger Gracie blackbelt; Oli Geddes has just released his Footlock mastery instructional.
As well as being a prolific competitor with over 600 tournament matches, Oli is one of the best instructors we know.
This instructional is based strictly on IBJJF legal techniques from white belt and above. For beginners, it’s a very good, detailed look at an often neglected submission technique. More advanced players will enjoy the positions Oli shows – including the 50/50, outside hook ankle lock and the overhook x-guard.
