The Eclipse Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu kids Ellison Tipton, Ellis Baggott & Connor Durbin almost made it a clean sweep at the last two tournaments, At the Hereford open Championships, one of the biggest for the kids Ellis took Gold and Connor took gold away from an unfortunate Ellison who both made it to the final. They then went to Brighton to fight in the southern championships with Ellis again taking gold and Conner also taking gold beating an opponent in the final who was 20KG heavier. Ellison lost out with an unfortunate refs mistake having released an arbar he thought had won him the fight but the ref allowed the fight to continue. Overall another amazing result for the Walsall Gracie Barra boys.
