MEMBERS OF the IW Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and MMA Academy have been racking up the medals in mainland competitions.

Last weekend, five members won 13 medals at the Richmond Jiu Jitsu Open. Callum Atkinson won two gold medals, while Doug Atkinson came away with three silvers.

Paul Manning won two silvers, while Mateusz Halas won one gold and one bronze, and Sophie Knight won four silvers.

Earlier, seven members won seven members at the Welsh Jiu Jitsu Open, while there was more success for members at the High Wycombe Open.

Academy coach Martin Dell said: "The preparation all our competitors have put in has been extremely effective and the results speak for themselves. We have a lot of competitions coming up all over the country this year and it's our mission to bring as many medals and trophies back to the Island as possible."
