Nancy- World Champion


Nancy competed at the Brazilian 
Jiu-Jitsu junior world Gi championships on Saturday at Aldersley leisure village
 in Birmingham. This was Nancy's first 
competition. Nancy has been training at Gracie Barra Mansfield for just over a
 year. Nancy won gold in the white belt 
female junior 2 weight category. 
Winning her gold medal with a 
submission called a cross collar choke.


Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art and 
combat sport based on ground fighting 
and submission holds. BJJ focuses on the skill of taking an opponent to the 
ground, controlling one's opponent, 
gaining a dominant position, and using a number of techniques to force them into submission via joint locks or chokeholds.


Credit to Nancy we knew she would be
 good but being Nancy's first competition we were not sure how good. She 
submitted and beat some great 
competition who had been doing it and 
competing longer than Nancy. We
 couldn’t be more proud! 
Well done Nancy. You are amazing!
