Scott McGregor receives the BlackCombat brown belt certificate from Commander England

During the BlackCombat attack drills seminar on the 6th of January 2019 Bridport martial artist Scott McGregor received his award for the brown belt. Since Scott’s first graduation as a white belt a lot has happened.

While his previous grading still was under the rules of Anti Terror Combat, this self defence organisation got renamed shortly after and is now BlackCombat. 

All relevant rules apply the same way and Scott went in the recent months through this bone-breaking training.
