Two weeks ago Christchurch and New Zealand experienced the darkest day in its history with the attack carried out at the two mosques. One of our members and former Cantabrian David Gordon organised an open mat last Saturday.
The invite was to Brazilian jiu jitsu and Judo clubs throughout the Nelson region. The event raised $260 with all proceeds going towards the victims families through the give a little page. There was a great turn out and it was a very enjoyable open mat. Our club is about community and this was a great example of how to support a cause through the recreation that we all love.
