Cedric ‘The Dominator’ Doyle, owner of Dominator’s Den ,obtained a first place in the South African Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation (SABJJF) Championships that was held in Springs on 27 May.
Doyle is a blue belt fighter.
Two of his students, Kerwin de Waal and Paul ‘Piksteel’ Ronge, both white belt fighters, finished second and third respectively.
Rudolph ‘Bizkit’ Pretorius and Ronge took part in the Fight Star 24 competition held in Germiston on Satuday and excelled.
Ronge won the first round with a rear naked choke and Pretorius won in the second round with a total knock out.
Doyle said Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the best of all the traditional martial arts.
“We focus on ground fighting, either submitting your opponent or choking him out,” said Doyle.
He reckons this type of martial arts is the best way of unarmed self defense.
He invited parents to send their high school boys with aggression or addiction problems to a practice session.
“We thank God for keeping us save in this amazing sport,” said Doyle.
“Even though it is a dangerous and violent sport, I still believe I can take God to every area of my life.”
He thanked the club’s sponsor, Roman Alarms, for the support.
Dominator’s Den offers different classes every day.
