Pennsylvania’s a great state, I should know, it produced me lol. I love my home state and whenever the chance presents itself with events like the NAGA, I take advantage.
This past weekend we took a team of students up to Broomall Pennsylvania for the NAGA Grappling/BJJ Tournament.
Our team consisted of both seasoned competitors as well as first timers. Beginner or advanced, everyone came ready to battle it out for top honors.
Both adults, kids and teens all competed on the same day (Saturday) and believe me, it ended up being a long long day the coaching staff. And by coaching staff I mean Miss Chrissy and I.
IMO the MVA student of the day for teens goes to either Michael Garlington or Jacob Rosenblaum, with both claiming gold medals in their respective divisions.
Our MVA for the little kids was without a doubt Brody “Warlock” Gallant, who snagged double gold medals in Gi and NoGi divisions.
And for the adults, Big Man Ed Hunt looked awesome and showed a much improved skills on his way to taking silver in NoGi and gold in Gi.
I’d like to go on and on about everyone’s performance but sadly I don’t have that kind of time. Just know we’re super proud of everyone who took part and win or lose, progress has been made!
