North Okanagan Shuswap Brazilian jujitsu members returned home with enough medals to sink a pirate ship.

NOS members participated in the  third annual BC Provincial Brazilian jujitsu Championships last weekend in Abbotsford.

Current International Brazilian Jiujitsu Federation featherweight division champion, Liam Moss led the way for NOS winning two gold medals in the light featherweight division.

Siblings Elan and Winter Breget each won a gold and silver medal, competing in the same weight class.

The two brothers participated in the same divisions in juvenile peewee and made it to the finals against each other, with little to separate the pair.

Ty Bailey also picked up two medals in the juvenile peewee 2 division, both silver in colour.

Tristen Bailey was not to be outdone and won two of his own medals, a silver and bronze in the junior division.

Mario Deveault, owner and instructor of NOS BJJ was very pleased by the results and is looking forward to the upcoming Western Canadian Championships on July 4, in Penticton.

NOS BJJ will be hosting youth summer camps for anyone who may be interested in joining.

The two-week camp will focus on learning jujitsu skills as well as building confidence, self defense, leadership skills, and bully prevention.

The camp will start at 9 a.m. and run until noon or 3 p.m. from July, 13-18 and August 10-15. Spots are limited, to register E-mail Mario at
