I am very proud of this years Fargo Open Competitors. Jiu-jitsu is about surviving adversity and overcoming challenges, and at this years event we had plenty…
We decided to come in this year with a skeleton crew of only about 10 people or so, most of whom had less the 1 year training. Unfortunately due to lack of competitors the event combined all experience levels into
Congrats to Joey Mack. He is proof that if you put in the extra time drilling the system it will pay off. On his way to winning both Open Weight divisions Joey controlled and beat quite a few guys with many years experience over him!
Its scenarios like this that, tho may seem unfair on the surface, give us a great view of the potential of our up and coming teammates.
This was the first year we did not win the ‘Team Title’ but I believe it was one of our best showings as a team to date!
Congratz to everyone and thanks to everyone who came out in support
