The kids division ended with some awesome results, plenty of smiles and everyone eager for more.

The Adult Divisions. 

The Adults divisions had plenty of epic battles and great results.   We had Ming take First Place in his division, Eugene took second in Gi and Second in No-Gi, Asia won Third in Gi and Third in Open Gi divisions, and Kyle took third in Gi division.  Matt fought like true warrior with enough fights for me to lose count and I couldn’t be prouder of his performance and everyone else as well.

Thank you all for the work you put on the mats.  I couldn’t be prouder to watch how much you all have grown in Jiu-Jitsu and as people.  Keep up the great work and lets get ready for the next one!
