Back in tournament action for the Subfighter No Gi Spring Challenge. I went to coach Tameem Hamoui as usual. This tournament was a redemption run for him after the last couple of tournaments didn't turn out so great.
Sunday was the Subfighter Holiday No Gi Challenge at Dana Hills High School in Dana Point, California. We actually didn't have anybody from our gym competing in this tournament as we have so many guys focused on upcoming MMA fights. I went to go coach my friend - black belt Tameem Hamoui - and to hang out with friends as usual.
So Saturday, I went to Studio City for another CXF MMA show. But that morning, there was an in-house nogi Jiu Jitsu tournament at Adam Lynn's Subfighter MMA in Laguna Hills as well. It was a 3-years experience and under tournament with one big rule difference from other tournament — competitors were allowed to use the cage wall for takedowns in their matches.
