Trevor Clarke (Purple Belt) and 3 of his students;
Shanelle Clarke & Brian and Alec Thompson (white belts ) made the long flight to Rio
to Train with the world famous BJJ master, Mestre Sylvio Berhing at his home Gym in his home town.
They were there for 2 weeks before the tournament and were joined by 25 other Arashi-Do Behring
students, building team Canada, the second largest team at the tourney.
It was a awesome experience, not only to train but see the great city of Rio De Janero and
allit had to offer. They had a lot of fun both on and off the mats.
I am happy to report that at the tournament, out of 1200 competitors and many divisions,
Springbank came home with 2 silvers and 2 bronze medals; a great achievement that they are
very proud of. They will keep training and perhaps one day make the trip again to try for the gold.
