RTBJJ Association at Miami Open IBJJF 2012
Another great weekend for RT Association!
I want to send special congrats to TJ Tomlin for winning his gold medal. He moved his Adult Team: Team American Elite Academy to first Place Overall at American Grappling Federation Oklahoma City Open! This goes to show that YOU TOO can achieve your goal if you work hard and follow your dreams.
Congrats to Nick Albin in and Chad “the Beast” Hardy for winning the EGO. Nick won the open weight black belt division by submitting all of his opponents. Chad followed Chewy by submitting everyone in his gi and no-gi divisions.
Most importantly congratulations to all competitors that came to compete at Miami Open IBJJF 2012 last week. We competed with 32 competitors, The Top 3 Teams were 1ST PLACE Alliance 224 POINTS, 2ND PLACE Gracie Elite 192 POINTS and 3RD PLACE The Avengers 191 POINTS and WE finished IN 4TH with 143 POINTS, winning 12 GOLDS, 9 SILVERS and 8 BRONZES with 3 double Golds, Melissa Bentley, Jacob Hess and Renato Tavares, proving we are moving to the top and next year will be even better.
