Eoghan O’Flanagan, Grapple Fest Champion!!
On Saturday 21st May, New School BJJ No-Gi instructor, Eoghan O’Flanagan won the under 90kg belt at GrappleFest 12, one of the top UK grappling events.
Eoghan was competing against Jon Blank, a 10th Planet BJJ black belt and high level competitor from the US, with many accolades to his name, including taking 4th place at the 2019 ADCC World Championships.
During the last 5 minutes of their 15 minute round, Eoghan, fighting from the guard position, managed to put on a very tight triangle choke, forcing his opponent into submission! Huge congratulations go out to Eoghan from everyone at New School BJJ!!!
If you want to have the opportunity to train with one of the best No-Gi grapplers that Europe has to offer, then you can train under Eoghan at the Battersea dojo on Monday evenings, from 8pm to 9.30pm, and Saturdays at 1.30pm to 3pm!
