Wow, early yesterday morning Jared, myself and our 10th Planet SF Family went down to the Fit Expo held at the Los Angeles Convention center and weighed in for the 2014 Gracie Nationals. What happened throughout the day was unbelievable.
The Gracie Nationals is a growing submission only tournament, where the matches are 15 minutes and the points don’t matter. This format is great for seeing some high level Jiu Jitsu in its purest form. There was definitely some great high level jits going on there, some great stacked brown belt divisions.
Jared and I both took first in our divisions, subbing 2 opponents ( Way to rep 10th Planet Walnut Creek! ). I was getting ready for the open weight division but the volume of white and blue belts ran the tournament late and they couldn’t hold the purple open weight. Video coming soon!
Thank you for all of your support!
