Rolandas Janavicius (left) a member of the Checkmat/ TF Fitness Centre in Berwick, recently travelled to London to compete in the biggest BJJ International competition in the UK.

In the heavyweight division he won his first fight in under three minutes, but he faced a heavier opponent in his second bout and eventually ended up with a bronze medal.

This meant he could compete in the Absolute division, and here he had two straight fights which he won by submissions. In his third and final bout he lost by only two points leaving him with another podium position, this time for a silver medal.
