EPIC Interclub Competition

Tomorrow sees the latest EPIC interclub competition in Portishead hosted by Andy Cleeves. Gordano School’s main hall will see over 120 fighters compete for the medals and trophies that are attributed to those who finish in the top 3 of each category.

With 42 categories there will be plenty of fights across the 3 sets of mats, with each area having 4 referees to keep scores it will sure be a busy occasion. There will be a hog roast available in the afternoon as well as plenty of refreshments that will be sold from a stall. Spectators can watch all of the action unfold from 10.30am for just £7 per person, fighters pay £15 but can enter unlimited amounts of divisions (as long as they qualify for the description of the category.) The competition will see fighters from Cobra martial arts, Jamie Woodlands Academy, Byrne Black Belt Academy, Body Focus Martial Arts and of course the EPIC team.
