Tyson did great, he is quickly becoming a favorite to watch for all the AZ Jiu Jitsu Community. His fast pace technical matches have the crowd captivated on every grip. Tyson took second in his weight class and third in the open weight.
Jonny competed in just his second ever Jiu Jitsu tournament. His first and only match ended with him behind on points. We are very proud of Jonny for his preparation for the tournament and for getting out on the mats. He showed what De Boa is all about, great drive and determination accompanied by great sportsmanship and representation of himself and the gym.
This week at De Boa we start a two week series on back takes, back attacks, and back escapes. First we will take time to look at the matches from our students and areas where we can improve on. This is a very important piece to competition is the growth after the fact. We look forward to bringing a larger team to the NABJJF Grand Canyon State Tournament in April!
