June 2011 Team Grading Day – Milton Keynes


A great turnout with many black, brown, purple, blue and white belts all on the tatami to celebrate the achievements and successful progress of all who recieved the hard earned recognition. Well done all now lets not dwell on it but go train hard for the future!! Osssssu!

Congratulations at the Bournemouth Open!

This year ICON Jiu-Jitsu Team brought a combination of fighters from Luton, Peterborough and Milton Keynes ready to do their best and that they did! Was an excellent display of Jiu-Jitsu and heart from all who competed with all competitors right down to white belts showing an exceptionally high technical level which was great to behold and promises a lot for the future.

Stand out fighter for the team was Germaine Gill with a dominating performance and gold medal victory over some of the best in his category from across the country where he technically devestated the opposition with strong sweeps, submissions and passes but the move that stunned the crowd and drew the most gasps was a powerfully explosive Uchi Mata that secured Gold in a large field of fired up athletes form other teams. A demonstration confirming to all that Germaines top-secret complimentary Judo training has been paying off!

In other news Delroy McDowell entered the Heavy weight category as a middle weight and was denied Gold by peculiar refereeing decisions …sorry but it had to be said! ;-P But well done all athletes, the future is very bright!
