Franklin will ‘jujitsu’ his way to Europe
CHERRY — Jake Franklin of Cherry is headed to Austria next week to compete in an international martial arts tournament.
A 2010 graduate of St. Bede Academy, Franklin qualified for the international Jujitsu Worlds competition after winning his division at the national competition earlier this year at Niagara Falls and after his coach learned there was an opening on this year’s United States team. Franklin will compete in Jujitsu grappling or Ne-waza.
“My coach thought I had earned a chance to fight,” Franklin said.
