Astra sponsored Rio gets another gold but has even more reasons to feel proud!

World Champion Rio wins another gold, and on top of that, his mentoring skills are proven as he helps fellow jiu jitsu competitor win her first gold medal!

2020-01-13

Current World Champion Rio Patterson has added another gold medal to his collection in winning the London Warriors Cup in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. The event, which is in its fourth year, is a one-day event and took place at the end of October last year.

Rio, who is sponsored by Astra Security comes from Yate, near Bristol, and already has a broad collection of championship titles – he holds the Welsh, British and European as well as winning the World Championships last July.

However, Rio also has an extra reason to feel proud. He has been mentoring a fellow jiu jitsu player, Isobel Yeend, who also managed to win her very first gold medal at this tournament.


Paul Beet, Managing Director for Astra Security said ‘It’s fantastic to see Rio being so successful in his sport. Not only that, he’s now helping others achieve their potential by being a Mentor – he really is inspirational. Supporting young people through sponsorship is important to us as a company, and when you see someone like Rio developing as a sports person, as well as the other life skills it brings, it makes it even more worthwhile. We wish Rio the very best of luck in his up and coming events.’

Rio’s dream is to represent Team GB if Jiu Jitsu becomes an Olympic sport. His next big event is in February and takes place in his home city of Bristol.

We’ll keep a close eye on his performance….
