My name is Armandas Jursys, born in Lithuania, age 17.
I started judo at the age of 5, and I am currently a brown belt in judo.
I currently compete at the international level for Judo & BJJ.
I've now been sponsored by UFC Gym Nottingham since the start of 2020 which has helped me to achieve a lot more.
I take a train every day from Grantham to Nottingham and back to be able to attend all the sessions at UFC Gym which is a key to my success.
My most notable results:
Placed #1 in All-Stars BJJ Europeans Gi
Placed #1 in All-Stars BJJ Europeans No-gi
Placed #2 in the BJJ No-gi British Open.
Placed #2 in the Kent International Judo Tournament.
As an elite-level athlete, I have to train daily which requires a heavy reliance on traveling to and from professional gyms and high-caliber events. The travel costs are the heaviest financial burden, and I rely primarily on sponsorship and goodwill from friends and family, which is why I have set up this page as some events are overseas and expensive to attend. Your help is very much appreciated.
