American Nationals 2012!!!!
We took a relatively small team to the 2012 IBJJF American Nationals (I assume most are still recovering from the Las Vegas Open trip LOL), 5 competition team guys in all, yet we came home with some serious hardware.
I got GOLD in my Gi division after two fights, GOLD in the NoGi division after one fight, and bronze in the Gi absolute after another two fights at the american nationals 2012. Brown belt and El Dorado Hills Jiu Jitsu instructor Eliot Kelly took home GOLD in his division, purple belt competitor Rich “Dark Matter” Bothun took silver in his division and bronze in the absolute, and “Little” Richard Wong took GOLD in the blue belt feather weight gi and GOLD in the light weight no gi american nationals 2012. If you see a pattern here let me know ;). Almost everyone, with the exception of Rich Wong, who can not fight absolutes because of his age and weight, fought their absolute divisions and brought back hardware from the American Nationals 2012!
