Students from the North Okanagan Shuswap Brazilian Jiu Jitsu team have shone in local, provincial and national events.

Now the team can add international success to their resumé. Five students from the school, Tristen Bailey, Ty Bailey, Élan Breget, Winter Breget and Liam Moss attended the 2015 Kids World Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Championships over the weekend in Los Angeles.

The tournament is one of the largest jiu-jitsu competitions in the world.

The quintet competed under the ATOS team, from San Diego.

Eight-year-old Tristen made it to the podium with a bronze medal in one of the largest divisions in the tournament.

His older brother Ty, 12, made it all the way to the final battling against his ATOS teammate from Phoenix. Ty settled for the silver medal.

Eleven-year-old Élan fought in a heavier division and won the  silver medal.

Élan’s younger brother Winter, nine, also made it to the final against his ATOS teammate from Costa Mesa, Calif., and ended up coming home with the gold medal and a world title

The NOS team phenom, 16-year-old Liam Moss from Kamloops,  led the team with decisive wins, taking the gold and defending his world-champion title from last year.
