So I’ve been slacking on updating the blog a bit, but not without reason! Last Sunday (Dec 11, 2016) we had our team competing in the Russ Miura Subfighter (sister-school) Holiday Nogi Challenge. We had ~18 people competing, and with only myself and Tracy coaching, there wasn’t much time for pictures.
October 26, 2016 - Brazilian Jiu Jitsu promotions
We had 9 promotions.
Blue: Gabriela Ochoa, Long Tran, Patrick Fernandez, Hector Ruiz & Jesse Herrera
Purple: Ryan Medina, Josh Jones & Bryson Gutches
Brown: Brett Cooper
Congratulations to everyone that got promoted. Some of these were wayyy overdue!

The day after Henry fought at Get Down Fights, we are at Subfighter in Laguna for the Subfighter Men’s Nogi Round Robin Classic. Outside of all the butt flopping for foot locks and the one whiney purple belt throwing a baby tantrum after he lost because he accidentally got smacked during a scramble, it was a pretty good day. 6 competitors, 5 medals, didn’t have to ref and got to see old friends again!
I’ve been super busy so this post is really late, but I wanted to get it in before I corner tonight xD
So my birthday was on Friday the 14th. I decided to get one last roll in on Thursday night at the advanced open mat at 10th Planet Costa Mesa. This led to some good and bad news xP…
The good news: I was there to witness Andy Balmore’s brown belt promotion from Ron Turner and Casey Halstead after 12 years of training and fighting.
