The Pan American Championship was a 4 long day event with Milton Bastos competitors on each day. We came as a team and left as a team. Purple belts went first and there were no easy matches for our adult male division. Our students were able to fix their mistakes and are already looking ahead to the next two tournaments. Next were our blue belts who fought equally as hard; fighting until the finals and two ended up going home with gold and silver. We also had two amazing brown belts making their Pans debut. One lost in the quarter finals and the other took home bronze.
All of our students worked incredibly hard and showed so much heart in every single one of their fights. We are so proud of all the progress everyone is making. Back to the lab to correct our mistakes and we are all looking forward to the full competition schedule for the year.
Up next is Jiu Jitsu World League this weekend, followed quickly by BJJ TOUR American Cup just two weeks after that on April 8 and 9. IBJJF Worlds is soon after in June and then on to Master Worlds.
We are ready
