This past weekend, Yemaso BJJ took a small group of competitors to the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation’s Pan American Championship in Irvine, CA. This tournament is the largest Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournament held in the greater American continent. It is not uncommon for a martial artist’s division to have over one-hundred competitors all vying for the gold medal and opportunity to earn the distinction of Panamerican champion.
We brought six medals back to Sacramento, and three of them were gold!
Head instructor, Marcos “Yemaso” Torregrosa won his 4th Panamerican title just weeks after his Abu Dhabi trials gold medal.
