What an exciting weekend for our Jiu Jitsu Community!
Sam and Evan from Rossland BJJ, Damian from Salmo BJJ and Kenny and his team from Castlegar all made the trek down to Spokane for the North West open tournament.
Evan competed in two weight divisions, coming in 1st with 2 matches both by submission and then went up a weight class to place 3rd after 6 matches. He ended up submitting 5/6 of his opponents with the same Americana/RNC combo.
Sam ended up coming 2nd with two hard fought fights.
Damian and Kenny both placed 1st in their divisions both by submission.
I feel very happy that our small jiu jitsu community can work together to help each other get better. Iron sharpens iron and I definitely could see how all of our gyms working together has made us all better at Jiu Jitsu.
Congrats to all the competitors this weekend! I am very proud of everyone!
