A win for an STA student at the Copa de Bangkok


An STA student's determination in Jiu Jitsu pays off in recent open competition. On 22 April 2017 St Andrews International School Bangkok student Andy competed in the feather (up to 70 kg) white belt category at the Copa de Bangkok Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Tournament at Chantanayingyong Indoor Stadium.


Having previously won a silver medal in the teen group in 2015, Andy was not expecting such a strong result in the open age division with his team looking for him to gain valuable experience against stronger competition. We are proud to report that Andy came home with the gold medal will be looking to earn a blue belt soon … a very rare feat for a competitor his age. When he’s not training, Andy has been attacking his upcoming IGCSE exams with the same intensity. Congratulations from the entire St Andrews community!
