We couldn’t be more proud of ourthat went down to San Antonio and competed in the 2014 MatShark San Antonio Open. Everyone of our members that went down there and competed brought back a medal.
Here’s the breakdown of the team that went down and competed in the MatShark Jiu Jitsu tournament:
Christian Paul – silver in lightweight nogi intermediate
Matthew Gruesenmeyer – Bronze in both f170lb blue belt GI and intermediate nogi
Albert Villareal – Gold in Nogi
Chris – Silver NoGi and Bronze in purple belt Gi
Competition is a big leap from being a casual Jiu Jitsu player. It requires deeper focus and a different mindset.
A special congrats goes to Albert who entered his first tournament ever, it takes alot of courage, and hopefully he’ll decide to compete in a jiu jitsu tournament again.
