January marks the beginning of the Jiu Jitsu competition calendar with one of the worlds biggest tournaments.
This year, the same as every year some of the Hive's Jiu Jitsu team travel over to Lisbon Portugal to compete.
This is a fantastic opportunity to challenge ourselves against other Jiu Jitsu practitioners from across Euorpe and the rest of the world.
This year every team member fought with grit and determination. Not everyone came out on top but each one of us learned something from the experience and we had a great time testing our skills.
The best thing about competing and travelling as a team is supporting each other, getting the chance to make new friends, see new places and make awesome memories.
