Once again the Omni Jiu Jitsu Team came through big with a ton of hardware from the Big Apple. In the kids division, Jaden, Aden and Christian took first place in their divisions, leading a group of 12 who took home gold, silver and bronze medals. Simone had to fight Shaolin's son in the final, so I found myself coaching against my own coach, which was kind of weird. It was a great fight and Enrique got the upper hand with a RNC...this time.
The adults all showed great heart as well with the two major highlights being Frederico's ascent through the absolute white belt division before finally running out of gas in a super tough final, and Coaches Alvaro and Rafael meeting in the final of their division and making a gentlemen's agreement that Alvaro would take gold and Rafael silver. I couldn't have written it better myself.
