Odin Dawson - National BJJ Champion ...

Saturday 6th April, 2024

12-year old Crayke local, Odin Dawson, competed in the Elite Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) National Junior Championships on the weekend of March 23rd held in Wolverhampton.

Odin came away from the competition with double gold - one for Saturday’s with-Gi category and one for Sunday’s no-Gi category (fought with rash-guard and shorts).

Odin was undefeated all weekend, winning all but one fight by submission. That deciding semi-final with-Gi category fight’s winner was determined by advantage points–the most submission attempts–after the final tied score of 2-2. Odin entered the weekend’s competition with the record of 13 gold medals and 2 silver medals from 15 previous competitions in Manchester, Sheffield, York and Middlesbrough. He is now in possession of 15 gold medals out of the possible 17.
