The Bristol Open was founded in 2009 by Sean Veira, Sharon Gill and Andy Cleeves with a clear purpose to shape up the standards of sports martial arts competitions in the UK. We have since taken small steps year on year to improve our event and now have a broader vision. We are chasing the tail of the leading competitions in the World with a focus on growth and improvement far ahead of profits. We Endeavour to be the UK yearly calendar date on the world circuit with a reputation for efficiency, fair play and hospitality.
