Saturday morning our kids kicked off the day with a great showing. Here are just a few of the stand out moments:
-Charles went out and dominated his first match, up 20-0 before finishing a submission. Fun to watch the kid blossom.
-Tanner looked great in a very tough division, winning his first match in very impressive style. Tanner is a sponge, you can see him working everything the coaches have of shown him.
- Deshawn captured double gold, both GI and No-Gi in his first tournament as a grey belt.
-Carson looked smooth in his GI Division earning himself another gold medal.
-Jeremy won his very first Jiu Jitsu tournament after only a couple of months of training.
-Morgan gave an experienced grappler all that she can handle. I know that the next tournament for Morgan she is going to find lots of success.
-Payton looked awesome on her way to a bronze medal!
Saturday afternoon the adult blue belts took over the mat. Sometimes you win, sometimes to you learn, I know this group of blue belts are going to be hungry to fix mistakes and take on the AZ State Championships in June.
Sunday morning started with a bang! Our Purple Belts, Keli, Chris, and Andy all took home gold medals showing the way to the white belts hanging in the bullpen.
We had three stand out White Belt Performances; Blake took gold in a tough 13 man division. Both Bruce and Phil entered their first tournaments, it was really exciting watching them both get their hands raised for the first time.
Great Job team!
