It was another huge day of learning for the comp team at the recent GI Brisbane Sub Only tournament. A smaller team entered the event with 6 students and Coach Adam taking to the mats. There were some very hard fought matches and plenty of submission with the team walking away with 7 medals from the day.
Jennie Mortimer - Silver (division), Bronze (Super Absolute)
Lisa Sloan - Gold (division)
Devon Coetzee - Bronze (Super Absolute)
Kelan Pitcher - Silver (division)
Jack Langley - Gold (division)
Adam Gray - Gold (division)
Although there were few competitors the team showed up in force to support each other and it was definitely felt. It was a long day for some of the students who were in stacked divisions resulting in up to 7 fights for the day.
Everyone displayed some outstanding skills finishing with some technical submissions. There was a lot of defence on display and some moments that highlighted where we need to work on. Everyone showed true sportsmanship both on and off the mats, in victory and in defeat. It was another great day of learning and developing together as a team.
