These results are well deserved. All of the members listed above are serious about their Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, putting in a great deal of time and effort on the training mats each week.

Next up…

The next tournament for the CAZA BJJ comp team will be the 2019 QBJJC Gold Coast Championship. The Gold Coast is a two and a half-hour drive from Noosa so the number of competitors we send will be limited. Regardless, CAZA always does well at tournaments so we expect to see our competitors on the podium at this event.
