Today was Noah Tillis' SoCal Jiu Jitsu Championship at Schurr High School in Montebello California.
We had 15 people competing across all of the divisions — 5 of them in their very first grappling tournament.
8 golds, 2 silvers and a bronze. 15 competitors, 11 medals. We would obviously love 15 medals, but it was a pretty good outing for Team Subfighter.
Once again we have another Knockout Fight League show this month. This time we had 3 fighters on the card. Adam Lynn's Subfighter also had 2 fighters on the card.
Last Saturday before toe KFL amateur MMA fights, there was a surprise party at Russ Miura's gym for his 10-year anniversary as a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt. He was also a year overdue for his 3rd degree on his BB, so Chris Brennan came along to present him with that as well. There's not too much to talk about, but a LOT of people showed up and rolling + tacos = always a good time!
So earlier this month (October 7) we had Gabriel Green fighting at a new show called Extreme Fighters (http://extremefighters.tv). They decided to have their first show at the CSU Long Beach Pyramid, which for Gabe was sort of a homecoming as he actually graduated from CSULB and it was his first time back since. The card featured guys like former UFC title contender Karo Parisyan, SoCal BJJ legend Cleber Luciano & was supposed to have UFC veteran Antonio McKee, but he got injured before the show and had to pull out.
