Chris Rees (Gracie Barra Swansea) 'The competition was superbly run as always and really set the benchmark once again. Organisation, communication and overall professionalism were excellent as I've come to expect from the Hereford comps.'
Lee B (Alliance UK) 'This was our first event and we all had a great time, was good to meet some of the other uk bjj guys and me and the team will certainly be back.
Thanks Dave for a great day and congratulations to all the competitors.'
Mark P (Gracie Barra Mansfield) 'it was the first BJJ comp for our guys and they all really enjoyed it. A nice friendly atmosphere from everybody there, and was also nice to see the coaches from the opponents coming over and congratulating each others fighters no matter what the outcome of the fight and passing on compliments.'
Rob T (Gracie Barra Swansea) 'This was a great event, run to the same high standards as all previous Combat Academy events... I am still to experience one running late (and I've been to a lot).'
