Belsey Brothers Success

Casey and Bradley Belsey from the Isle of Sheppy joined the Warriors Grappling Academy last year to try out MMA, Sombo, Kurash and Judo. The Academy is based at the Swale Martial Arts Club East Street Sittingbourne. Both men are accomplished Judo Players representing GB both have been trained by their father 3rd Dan Rob Belsey

On Sunday 12th February 2012 they took part in the Northern Home Counties Open, this was a Senior and Masters Ranking event. British ranking are now done on various competitions so this was an important event for those wishing to compete for GB and eventually go to the Olympics.

Bradley is the oldest of the brothers and fought in the Men’s u60 kilo class winning Bronze putting him amongst the top 3 in the country
Younger brother Casey fought in the men’s u66 kilo class on his way to the final he Scottish and Senior Squad players he lost to the Senior Welsh Champion
These two men along with their Coach/Father have travelled the length and breadth of the UK to compete they train 5 days a week and some weekends and that is the only way if you want to make it to the top in any grappling sport

Both have become excellent MMA and Sombo fighters, we expect to see a lot of MMA titles under their belt in the future and already British Sombo Federation National Coach John Clarke who is based at the Warriors has put their names forward to represent GB in the European Sombo Championships to be during May in Moscow.
