They had four competitosr taking part, Kev McCulloch, Damian Winkiewicz who won bronze, Rolandas Janavicius, who won gold, and Mitchel Barton, who returned with two golds (one in his category and another from the overall).

With this performance the team finished fourth in the Scottish BJJ rankings, which is a massive achievement considering they have only been operational for a year.

The club also has a successful junior section, for competitors aged between 4 and 11, and head coach Thiago Ferreira says tey are showing great potential.
