Today we had the SUBCON Los Angeles Open in Norwalk. It was a double elimination tournament that split the divisions by belt rank. Beginner = white, intermediate = blue/purple, advanced = brown/black. We had 7 guys competing from Subfighter. Plus Tameem Hamoui since I've been coaching him in matches for the last 10 years.
Speaking of Get Down Fights 17, there were obviously the MMA fights that followed the tournament. I stuck around because a couple of guys I know were fighting in the show. Unfortunately they were fighting each other, but that has to happen sometimes when you are fighting for the championship. It was Albert Lee from Juliano Prado’s Total MMA (and featured previously on this site) vs Sean Datte from Antonio McKee’s Body Shop. The fight was exciting with solid GnP from Sean and a lot of solid submission attempts by Albert.
