BJJ Stand-Up With GI
My name is George Nedelchev and I am 55 years old. I have been training Judo since the 7th grade and was Bulgaria’s champion in the divisions: Junior Teens, Senior Teens, Young Men and Men. I was a member of the national teams for Teens, Young Men and Men. I won a bronze medal from the Adult Male division in the Balkan competition of 1983. I have also been awarded medals from various competitions in Sambo and Japanese Jiu Jitsu. I did my military service in the Central Sports Committee of the Army (CSKA).
In 1985 I earned a Masters in Sports majoring in Judo. I have been teaching Judo since 1996 and have been a teacher at the “Vasil Levski” sports high-school in Plovdiv since 2003.
In 2001, Stoyan Nedelchev (one of my sons) achieved 9th place for Teens in the Olympics in Murcia, Spain. In 2005, Petko Nedelchev (my other son) also earned the 9th place for Teens in the Olympics in Lignano Sabbiadoro, Italy. Subsequently, in 2018, Petko also won a bronze medal in the European BJJ No-Gi Championship in Rome, Italy.
Another one of my students Borislav Yanakov won 9th place in the Teen division of the Judo World Championship held in Paris in 2009. Afterward, in 2010 Borislav also won the 5th place in the Teen division of the European Judo Championship.
In 2014 I started training Hristo Iliev who is visually impaired. He covered all requirements for 5th kyū in Judo.
