Great start to the competitive new year with a small team heading to Stoke-on-Trent to defend the Red Shield in the British Open NoGi Championship (postponed from December 2017 due to snow ⛄)

Big Seamus displaying great pose and confidence in his first NoGi competition, stepping up to the Heavyweight division and securing the BRONZE medal for another podium finish.

And not-so-Lonewolf Lockwood taking GOLD in his first crack at the BLUE belt division – picking up a triangle choke finish and Kimura lock to secure the title – with professor Nathan on hand to Coach between refereeing duties.

Awesome start to 2018, start as you mean to go on.
