Coach Craven wins the World Trials

Will Machado Sweep the division.

Congratulations to Head Coach Andrew Craven for taking out the puple belt over 74kg division at the world trials in Auckland on November 13.  This was the heaviest purple belt division and Andrew had to overcome opponents who were heavier than hims as well as being skilled purple belts.  Some very close matches saw Andrew take the gold -once again cementing his reputation as one of NZ’s top BJJ competitors. 

Was also great to see Will Machado filling the podium for this division with GSW taking second and our good friend Warren Lambert from Submission Martial Arts taking third.

Andrew will be off to Abu Dhabi for the World Championships next year.  We look forward to helping him prepare.
