Wellington Open Submission Only competition results / by Andrew Neverman

On Saturday September 30 the J's Gym BJJ team competed in the Wellington Open Submission Only (Gi) competition. Steve Looker won gold in the Men’s White Belt 76kg division. Naim Hamdi-Pacha competed in the Men’s White Belt 82.3kg division. Naim won his first fight convincingly with a figure-4 submission from side control. Unfortunately, his remaining fights didn't get him the results he wanted. Finally, Colin Bennett competed in the Men’s Blue Belt 100.5+kg division. However, he lost both his fights in the overtime arm bar challenge. All fighters went home with a load of lessons learned, and a lot to work on. The team would like to thank their coaches and team members for their help with preparation for the comp.
