Over 500 deep…..We love these odds!
Thats right, with over 500 competitors this was by far the most attended NAGA from competitors nationwide. The Budokan’s youth fought with heart and soul leaving it all on the mats. Very fast paced matches with plenty of technique including solid submissions and high flying takedowns (Ryan Peans Tomoe Nage). Big congrats to the first time competitors such as Louis Jimenez who placed first in both gi and no gi divisions.
Special Congratulations to Ally Fitzgerald who took home the NAGA belt! Alexandra Fitzgerald is our first female competitor to win the “youth expert” division. Winning all fights by devastating submission. Everyone fought with great determination and intensity of purpose. Once again making the dojo proud. Remember, you are all winners for stepping up to the challenge and performing at your best! The experience you have gained today is priceless. The support from all parents was monumental, our success is owed to you and your commitment.
“Victory loves preparation.”
Train smart & I’ll c u on the mats. Osu
P.S. Next week is MMA Action in the cage for Joe “kid Dynamite”…… Budokan 24/7
