June the 30th saw the Any Jacket Sambo competition in Leeds. after arriving and weighing in for the event the competition started promptly with the Juniors and cadets. there were some very good matches and it was a chance to spot some future talents that may in the future be representing the UK. after the Juniors came the womens division, there was only one match in this division due to a lack of entries which was a hard fought match between Susan King from Liverpool and Toni Lister from Doncaster. The senior mens division again saw some great matches with some very hard fought fights across all the ages and weights. Finally came the Combat Sambo Division and some noteable fights were Igor from Liverpools fights and Ivan from Fusion Sambo in Bradford both demonstrating noticeably different but highly effective styles! the day ended promptly and it must be said it was an enjoyable and well run event which I think everyone enjoyed!
The results for Liverpool were:
Piotr – Gold, 100kg Sport Sambo
Igor – Gold, 90kg Combat Sambo
Sue – Silver, Master Sport Sambo
John – Silver, u74 Master Sport Sambo
