Jiu Jitsu silver medal for Thiago
Berwick Jim Jitsu coach Thiago Ferreira competed for the first time as a black belt when he entered the British National Championships at Crystal Palace in London at the weekend.
It was his first event after a near 15-month break and Thiago exceeded his own expectations by returning with a silver medal.
“It was a blessing to be able to do it again and see some special friends that have made part of my journey until now,” he said.
