Ivey League continues to have success on the grappling tournament circuit. This past weekend we sent the travel team to compete in Virginia Beach, at the Naga southern championships.
The team consisted of both kid and adult students. We had a bunch of solid performances but the ones that stand out the most were turned in by Platinum Member Jeff Blachey and BBC Member Robert “Bicep” Mish.
Both looked unstoppable and brought back a total of four gold medals in both gi and nogi competition. Nice work fellas!
Below you’ll find the full results.
Mike Garlington – Double Gold
Robert Mish – Double Gold
Jeff Blachey – Double Gold
Alexia Lara – Double Gold
Maddie “WikiFish” Avila – Gold & Silver
Mark Sounders – Gold
Gunner Steinhardt – Gold & Silver
Zachary Gardner – Bronze
Jacob Miller – DNP
Lania Nick – DNP
Dax Avila – Silver
Tom Elliot – DNP
Grayson Bitting – DNP
Overall we thought the team did very well. We missed the mark on a few medals but in the end that’s how you learn.
Next up for the team will be the Battle at the Beach. That’s going to be a tough tournament to win but here at Ivey League we like a good challenge!
Below we added some videos of Coach Danny. He’s teaching some simple and effective BJJ techniques. Enjoy.
