BJJ British Open
This month saw the Jiu Jitsu community come together for the BJJ British Open, organised by our good friend Braulio Estima; which was the first major BJJ tournament since the pandemic took hold, so it was exciting to come together and see some familiar faces including many of our sponsored athletes.
Having sponsored the tournament it was a pleasure to host the Tatami pop up shop, which gave our fans an opportunity to buy some of our great products, and it gave us as a Team a chance to meet and chat with some incredible people. We particularly enjoyed meeting some of the future stars of BJJ on the Saturday, during the Kids tournament.
Some of our sponsored athletes who produced phenomenal winning performances, included Jayden Lee Price, on the winners podium.

Good luck to Ashley Bendle and Ashley Williams who jet off to Poland this week for the ADCC trials, we know you will carry the Tatami flag and represent Wales in the best possible way.
This weekend Team Tatami rolls on to Wolverhampton for the Elite Events European Junior Gi & No Gi Championships, which will give you the opportunity to come and buy some of your favourite Tatami products; further details can be found here: http://elitebjjevents.com/bjj-junior-european-championships/
