WEKAF European Stickfighting Championships - Warsaw, Poland, July 2011 - More CFS Success

A Big Congrats to CFS Associate Instructor Carl Jackson(a personal student of mine for over 10 years and one of only 4 people awarded the rank of Guro by me in the Filipino Martial arts FMA).

He Travelled to Poland in July for the 9th WEKAF European Stickfighting Championships where after solid performances, he secured Silver in Adult Welterweight division (single stick), Bronze in the double stick and Silver in the team event!!

The team event is open weight with 5 fighters from each country selected to fight one round each of non-stop carnage. The UK team beat Hungary and Germany losing only to Italy.

I understand there was a great showing from the UK team with a large presence from the 'Strike Team', now led by Damien Mills but taught by the fallen warrior, World, European & British Champion Guro Roger Barnes (deceased)

Great job guys :)

CFS Rashguards selling out!! - Get yours Fast!

Hey Team.....Those of you that have not picked up or reserved you RGs need to hurry up as they are going fast. This quality product made by ARMOURTECH (TATAMI FIGHTWEAR) is really good and the feedback so far has been all positive.

I can't promise you'll look as good as the guys in this pic but give it a go ;)

Daniel Strauss - ADCC Preparations

The training so far has been going really well. His S & C training is still at the highest level under the guidance of Fitness Guro Andrew 'Android' Marshall. We continue to work his ground and standup game at CFS HQ but now enters the final phase of training.

The 'Team' have sent The Raspberry Ape to NYC to train with Renzo Gracie, Roger Gracie and GSP to name but a few.

This is just what he need to be taken to the next level.

We wish him all the best ;)

CFS BJJ Manchester - Competition Success - 20.8.11

On Saturday 20th August 2011, the CFS BJJ Manchester/Fighting Fit team entered and fought in the 'Grab & Pull' North West open BJJ competition.

They did themselves proud ending up on the podium for their efforts. Competition is never easy for a number of reasons and indeed it's not meant to be. but that's what makes any type of success sweeter.

Below is a link to a fantastic report of the event by CFS Purple Belt Liam Wandi AKA ' The Part time Grappler with pics and vids


Well done guys!!
