Fifty/50 at GQ & ADCC

I woke up yesterday morning to head up to GQ, just in time to catch the PBP of Ryan's first match on (Thanks, Caleb!) I watched - er read - the pbp all the way up to Lancaster, PA (prob not a smart thing to do while driving, but I couldn't help myself, lol!) I'm so happy that Ryan performed so well this weekend, what a bunch of awesome fights! Third Place! Woohoo!!! During practice today we logged into the live feed and were able to watch Ryan receive his medal on the podium. He looked so happy. I'm SO proud of him!

Okay on to GQ: It's been about two weeks since I started training consistently for the first time since the Mundial, and I am definitely starting to feel sharper. I was a little slow coming out of the gate in my first few matches, but by the end of the gi division I started to feel a lot better. There were a total of EIGHT purple belt women at GQ. I've never seen anything like that at any other tournament that wasn't a CBJJ tourney. They put us all in one absolute division - we were prob 4 diff weight classes. I was happy to place third and get my first cross choke in competition ever!

The guys/gal all fought well too. Kenny, Anthony, and Rich all placed FIRST in their divisions. Seph did well - placing in both his divisions. Lisa did great for her first tournament ever! She ended up competing in both gi and nogi and placed third in her gi division!

Every single person who competed this weekend placed!

What a great weekend for Fifty/50 BJJ!
