I've been training with Icon around 3 weeks and i feel like I've found a second home (seriously.... I pretty much live there now). I was so nervous to start, especially as a woman, with no combat experience, in a male dominated environment; but the team and coaches are amazing, everyone is so encouraging, supportive and patient and it's just an awesome environment to stretch myself physically (both literally & figuratively) and mentally. Thanks Steve and all the guys and gals at Icon, you're an awesome bunch

Norfolk Open Norwich BJJ

What a great day for Norfolk BJJ, with the grappling community coming together to support Norfolk’s first BJJ tournament.  Many competitors fighting for the very first time and showing a strong heart and mind.

BJJ has come a long way here in Norfolk. Back when BJJ was trying to grow here in Norfolk, there were very few options for training, with just 3 or 4 Blue belts trying to figure out if they were doing it right!

My self included. Until meeting up with Ze Marcello, who helped us grow BJJ here in Norfolk to what it is today!

But it was great to see some friendly faces supporting Norfolk’s first BJJ tournament, including Lee Doski, who was one of the Blue belts back in the day, a true pioneer of this sport and MMA for Norfolk.  We would meet up with Lee on a regular basis as far back as 2004 in Norwich, feeling sure we were getting it right.

Also, great to see an old friend Josh Ayres bring a few of his team down from Kings Lynn, Josh has been training BJJ for ever and was great to catch up.

And this is what BJJ brings, community.  While we all want our team and fighters to do well.  You will always see comradery after the matches.  Both fighter congratulate each other and many times I saw the coaches of other teams congratulating the members of other team, even if their team mate lost.

We often think of Martial arts when we want our children to learn RESPECT and DISCIPLINE, but many schools or gyms do not know what these mean.  I think, BJJ shows these traits in abundance and we can learn a lot from the competitors and hopefully pass this to the younger generation.

Overall a great day for Norfolk BJJ.  With 200 competitors from around the Norfolk area, supporting the sport.

I would like to thank each and every competitor and every team who took their time to come to Norwich and make Norfolk BJJ what it is today.
