We started the weekend off by checking out Giva's new academy in Irvine, One Jiu Jitsu. The kids had an opportunity to take Giva's kids class and try out their skills with several tough kids from our extended BJJ family. They all performed incredibly well and pushed themselves through some tough drilling. We topped off the night with a pizza party to celebrate Giva's Birthday.
The following morning we heading off to the Pyramid bright and early to start off the day with kids no-Gi. Carson had some tough matches but looked great holding his own against the kid who took it all. Up next was Lexi with an outstanding performance securing an arm bar in less then 1 minute, landing her on the top of the podium for her 1st of 2 Gold medals she earned this weekend! Our adult crew brought home 3 Silvers, 2 Gold and 2 bronze medals in Gi (not to shabby for 5 competitors) Congrats to Logan and Coach Destiny on their Golds!!
De Boa kids did awesome on Sunday morning in Gi. Destiny, Lexi and Deshawn all took Gold in their division. The kids also earned 4 Silver medals and 5 Bronze! Coach Keli & Doc James fought No-gi in the afternoon, adding 2 more Silver medals to the Bling!
We were so impressed by the kids performances, they all had tough matches and fought their hearts out. Team De Boa should be very proud of themselves!
Thank you so much to our kids coaching team for all the work you did getting our kids team ready! Coach Andy couldn't make it out this weekend but put in lots of time getting the kids prepared! Coach Destiny and Coach Keli put in some VERY long hours this weekend and we want to give a big thank you to you both for all of your help!
*Lotus Club placed 2nd in adult and 3rd in kids!
Ready for 2016!! Team De Boa!
