6 Gold Medals For Brothers At The European Championships

Two brothers from Combat Athlete Martial Arts Academy together came back with 6 Gold medals, after competing in the Junior Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu European Championships.

Tristan Smith 15, won Gold in both Gi and No Gi divisions as an orange belt, then also went on to win Gold in both Gi and No Gi in the open-weight divisions. Corin Smith 17, won both gold in Gi and No Gi divisions as a blue belt.

The boys father Gavin Smith said ‘After becoming World Champions in California in previous years, and achieving Gold in several British competitions they are having a great year and looking forward to what the future holds for my sons.  They work very hard for what they have achieved and really deserve it’.

We have one of the head coaches of the kids UK BJJ Elite Squad teaching at Combat Athlete in Telford and I expect that we will start to see more talented students from Telford progress towards world competitions and putting Telford Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu on the map.
