Fort St. John BJJ practitioners bring home 29 medals

Red Dragon Martial Arts brought home 29 medals after a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournament in St. Albert last weekend.

The club had 25 BJJ practitioners take part in the True North Grappling Championship on April 16th. 

The athletes all fought hard and had really great results being their first tournament in the last few years.

Coach Ben Marsh is extremely proud of their hard work and looks forward to the next tournament coming up on June 18th.

Some members were able to win medals in either their Gi and no Gi matches, or both.

A Gi is the uniform practitioners wear while training. In Gi matches, competitors can grab the uniform, while it is not allowed in no Gi matches.
