Two girls from my all girls BJJ class competed for the first time Kaitlyn, who has been training for about 8 months and Tina, who only started a few months ago (and trains on Saturday only) Tina actually came in Saturday morning thinking she was there for girls class, she had no idea there was a tournament going on, she jumped right in without hesitation! Both girls did GREAT closing out their division.
I'm really proud of them, it takes a lot to get in there for the first time. After attending Inspire last week and seeing how many girls do jiu jitsu and how many actually compete, they should be really proud of themselves for being brave ;)
All of the SiegeMMA/Lotus Club students did very well, taking home the team plack!!
Drewjitsu.com always puts on a great tournament! Good experience for beginners and a perfect tournament to get warmed up for the season.
