BJJ Tournament Results, Soares Invitational for Jiu-Jitsu Vancouver
Micah Calapiz( at least 2 submissions) – 1st place, Adam Posener ( 3 submissions) – 1st place, Dimitri Kats – 2nd place, Ayden Arnold – 3rd place, Kristian Montes – 3rd place, Marques Calapiz – 3rd place, Honourable mention: Roddy MacIsaac (1st match RNC in 20 seconds, 2nd match close ) , Ernesto Lepore, Dylan Cheng. Antonio Costantino could not compete because he got sick a few days prior. Good job everyone. Some kids had to go with much bigger kids because the divisions got combined. I couldn’t tabulate everyone’s submissions because many matches were occurring simultaneously. Overall, it was a good opportunity to get experience and make progress. The future plans will be prepared in class shortly. The pictures show 1st and 2nd place only because they did not give medals to third place but there were third places.
