HAPPENINGS AT EMPIRE

What a great few months its been at Empire! The amount of effort being put in by everyone at the club has been remarkable and something everyone involved can be proud of. The improvement of everyone on the mats is something that comes from having good club spirit; and Empire has that in spades!

A few comps have come and gone and as always all representatives of the club have put in an amazing effort. A few weeks back saw a QBJJC competition in Carrara. Starting with the kids, young Callum scored a bronze in what would be a very competitive kids division. Well done Callum! Dan Owen secured gold in his gi, white belt division, again, a terrific performance in the final against a very tough opponent. In the 77kg blue belt division Nick took home the gold in no gi. Nick’s takedowns were quite impressive and paved the way for his victory in again, a very competitive division with many tough and skillful blue belts. Well done Nick! Well done Empire!

Last week we had the nationals down in Melbourne and Nick (who else) flew the Empire flag. In an absolutely stacked blue weight division Nick continued on from where he left off in Queensland; hitting takedown after takedown allowed for Nick to dictate the action for a lot of his matches. Ultimately, he managed to score a silver and in the process showcased his skills on the national stage. It was a great performance. Everyone at the club knows the effort Nick puts in with Brazilian Jui Jitsu with both coach Ricky and Dean so the silver at nationals was well deserved.

In other news Vish Naidoo has a bout announced for the next Eternal card. Unfortunately, his opponent in his last scheduled fight was forced to pull out due to injury, so to say Vish has been hungry to get back in the cage would be an understatement! If you see him around wish him luck!

Another day in the office at Empire
