The team smashed it today at SMMART (A rookie MMA competition in Aberdeen). Callum Clark and Craig Gracie won their divisions, closing out the 65 to 70kg category. Callum controlled with great wrestling display and dominant top game. Craig showed some slick striking and even showed his ever improving ground game with a nice armbar finish.
Craig Hepburn was up next and showed some great striking closing the distance and taking his opponent down with a nice takedown, initially passing guard and showing some controlling top game. Unfortunately his opponent managed to work his way to closed guard and caught Craig with a nice kimura from the guard. Craig demonstrated strong skills and it was a positive learning experience for the !
Lastly was big Thomas Jack, another one of our coming through the ranks. Thomas showed great composure with his opponent coming out swinging. He displayed his ever improving boxing on the back foot, walking his opener into the left hook from hell and earning him his first KO.
Unfortunately Jack was unable to compete as he had previously won the tournament. A bit frustrating after cutting the weight and being told he was allowed to compete but still the camp taught him a lot.
Win or lose we are extremely proud of our boys! Well done!
