Fighters from a Godmanchester martial arts club completed a clean sweep in a major event.

CODE Combat Arts members celebrated a one-two-three in the ground fighting category at the Independent Martial Art Sport Association UK Jiu Jitsu Championships in Leeds.

Club instructor Adam Gold lived up to his name to take top spot with clubmate Tom Hennessy claiming silver and Jay Bavester bagging bronze.

Bavester also collected a gold medal of his own in the standing combat section.

Fellow CODE fighter Sammie Price impressed in defeat against a vastly more experienced opponent after only two months of training.
