Here are today’s tournament results from the West Coast Grappling Championships in Langley B.C. from Posener’s Pankration/MMA – Jiu-Jitsu Vancouver
Rodean Nazari: Gold in No Gi and Silver in Gi, Ayden Arnold: Gold in No Gi. ( he was sick and unable to compete in Gi), Artin Nazari: Bronze in No Gi and Bronze in Gi ( he was also sick, as the flu was going around) Jonathan Chan: Bronze in No Gi ( First Grappling Tournament), Jonathan certainly got some good experience as 2 or 3 of his matches went into overtime and were very close and excellent matches. Honorable mention to Richard Ronquillo and Adam Nathani for also competing in their first tournament. Richard unfortunately sustained a significant shoulder tear early in his match but battled strongly in a close match. It is often hard to get the first tournament in so I want to congratulate you for making the effort and competing in a more advanced level. You all gained valuable experience and with a positive attitude, you will improve and make progress. Regardless of winning or losing it is good to think of what you can improve on and have the stimulation to progress and develop skills. Again Congratulations on the effort and results.
I would like to thank our awesome instructor team, Costa Rojas, George Kassimatis, Filip Matos, Emilio Ditrocchio, Andrew De Leon, the parents and the students who participate and help the team. I certainly appreciate the skills and positive spirit. Our team has been doing well.
