Coach Sergio Vilas takes home Silver
This past weekend in NY state Coach Sergio traveled to represent NJMMAA. He had a total of 3 matches to make the finals in his division. Coach Sergio out pointed all of his opponents leading up to the finals match.
In the finals he went against a very tough opponent from Bronx Martial Arts. Coach Sergio his his trademark Tio Toshi beautifully scoring big roars from the crowd. Then he locked up a very tight D’Arce choke from half guard causing his opponent to flee out of bounds to avoid the submission.
Instead of starting them back in the same position they had the competitors start back on the feet in a neutral position. The clock was not on Coach’s side as time ran out and his opponent secured a 5-4 win. Either way we are super loud of Coach Serg for putting it on the line and representing all of us at NJMMAA.
Be on the look out for Coach Sergio competing in many more tournaments in preparation for the Worlds in California in June.
