After strong results earlier this year the Mullumbimby-based Point Break Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) team are ready for the autumn running of the Australian Open this Sunday at the Cavanbah Centre.

The team led by Rhys Dykes won 12 gold, nine silver and ten bronze medals across various age divisions and belt levels at the most recent running of the Open.

The club finished third out of the 50 teams in the competition, and are looking to improve on that this weekend.
