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.
So the day after the Knockout Fights, we're in Dana Point for the Subfighter No Gi Spring Challenge. Another hectic tournament for us as usual with over a dozen students competing in kids, womens, mens, beginner, intermediate and advanced. Gabriel Green also had his CSULB film school buddies at the tournament filming for their senior thesis.
In Santa Ana again for the Subfighter Summer No Gi Jiu Jitsu Challenge. Didn’t get as many pictures as I hoped since we had 19 guys competing and Tracy and I were running all over coaching. I think half our guys medaled and either our team or 10th Planet Costa Mesa took the team award (results still had to be tabulated when we left). Missed Dillashaw vs Barao for this tournament!
About to head back home from another weekend of fights in Laughlin. We’ve been taking guys to fight in this show for almost a decade now (my last fight was in March 2008 in this same show). We had hoped to have more guys fighting on the card, but only found match ups for Mario Delgado at middleweight and Fabian at Roa heavyweight.
