Coach Ivam Maciel says: “It’s a pleasure for me to be back teaching at ZT! It makes sense, both teams will gain from it, making both of us much stronger. I’m looking forward to be sharing my skills with great bunch of guys and also learn from them.” This deal benefit students from both associations: ZT and IMBJJ members can now cross train BJJ classes UNLIMITED and FREE of charge. A new timetable will be available yet this week, bringing extra classes, we hope you all enjoy! Osss
Last Sunday IMBJJ massive went to Gillingham, Kent for one more edition of TUFF Grappling Challenge. Our Brighton based team had also support from our recently new affiliates from Guildford and Haywards Heath. The competition was tough, clubs especially from London came strongly well prepared and with a nice crowd behind them. These plus great matches made a great atmosphere inside and outside the mats.
Personally for us, another great day at the office. Thanks to a hard work and effort put on practise by every member of the team – we had done very well! We reached the TOP 3 on team’s results once again! It shows that we are in the right way and we got to keep it up. It’s hard getting there, even harder to hold.
Congrats to every member of Ivam Maciel Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Team! Check out results, photos and videos below.
