Rob Long Wins Army Champs

Rob Long is a British Army veteran who was blinded by an improvised explosive device whilst on duty in Afghanistan.

Rob has an amazing attitude and has made the decision to make the most out of his life. As part of this he recently took up Jiu Jitsu and has been training with Andy on Wednesdays in Aldershot and more recently as his confidence has grown he has started training at Roger Gracie’s Academy.

Yesterday he competed in the Army BJJ tournament, his first tournament and against fully sighted individuals.

He won gold.

Below is a little video of a throw he performed in the final.
