Southend Charity Nogi Open 2016
As the year approaches a close we saw some representatives head down to Southend to represent the team at a charity event in aid of Myeloma UK with all the proceeds being donated to the charity. The competition was in a submission only format with matches heading in to sudden death overtime in the case of a draw. Coach Stuart achieved 2nd place with a win in overtime via rear naked choke in a division where here gave up a 10kg weight advantage competing in the 75kg Purple Belt division.
