What a Great day we spent at Renzo Gracie Denville on Sunday. We had In house/ Quad meet tournament between North Jersey MMA, Renzo Gracie Denville, Uptop Martial Arts and Sakura BJJ. All fantasic teams with amazing instructors and students. Everyone came together for a fun filled day of bjj competition and to raise money for an amazing cause.
A fellow BJJ pracitioner Angel from Clock Work JJ in NYC came down to compete against 2 competitors 1 from Renzo Gracie Denville and the other our very own Coach Brian Rast. So what’s the big deal right? We Angel is a 100% legally blind. He showed up accompanied by his training partner, his guide dog and Gi in hand ready to compete at the ripe old agew of 54yrs old haha. JK He took on both of his opponents half his age winning both matches on points.
After his matches him and the organization he competes under nolimitsjiujitsufoundation.org accepted the tournament proceeds towards his journey to the World Championships of Jiu Jitsu this year in California. It is always amazing time and time again you see the jiu jitsu community come together to support its brothers and sisters in arms in all causes. Im grateful and honored to be apart of this community nd what it has to offer all human beings from all walks of life! Jiu Jitsu Para Vida my fellow mat monsters!
