Tag: BJJ Competition
Recently I competed at the IBJJF 2019 Summer Chicago Open tournament. During this BJJ competition I was able to hit several of the techniques I teach through my Youtube videos and in my gym.
During the highlight video you’ll see a mixture of guard passing, top pressure and takedowns where I was able to win triple gold at the BJJ tournament. The medals were 1 gold in my weight class (gi) then gold in my weight class (no gi) and I won the open class (no gi).
These matches took place in the Masters 1 division.
If you’re not familiar with what Masters divisions are in Brazilian Jiujitsu. They’re divisions for us “old” guys. Haha.
Truth be told I still compete against younger guys in various tournaments but I prefer the shorter match times of 6 minutes. This match duration allows me to play aggressively without worrying about running out of steam.
Enjoy the video and I just want to say thanks again to all of you who showed your support during the competition.
Oh and it was great meeting many of you who were there!
Thanks for watching!
