First thanks to all our parents for bringing the kids out and supporting our team throughout the day. Thanks to Mike Korda for keeping me fed and energized and Cory Dunne for keeping me hydrated

Declan – Man, you fought some crazy battles! Happy you got the chance to pull off some new techniques and your sweeps looked strong. Looking forward to your next tourney!
Lucas – What a first match! 20 seconds of beastmode attacking untill you landed that choke. You also showed great skill against your second opponent. Keep up the awesome work!
Brayden – Crazy focus and relentless attacks! You did an awesome job of imposing your game on your opponents and stuck with the plan until you got the wins. Great way to finish the year Nice work out there!
Tl Thipsouvanh– Great match TL, showed some great toughness to escape trouble and turn on the heat to your opponent. Huge improvements since your last tourney! Keep it up.
Mike Hissink – We all know how skilled and tough you are on the mats. Your time to shine in competitions will come soon. Keep training hard and competing regularly. that Match was so close…
Alex Gluzman – Great battles against some tough opponent’s. You’re hard work is paying off and 2017 will be your year to take home Gold’s in your division. I know it! Keep it up bro.
Amro Al Falastini – Congrats on your Silver and your exciting matches. With some extra focus on BJJ training and tournaments, you will soon be unstoppable in your division. I have no doubt. Keep training hard bro.
Dolan Walker – Speed, toughness and technique! You are definitely ready for the next level. Congrats on your gold and I’m very proud of how hard you have worked since coming back to training. Keep it up!
Kevin Moreira YanoMami – Man, great fights, huge difference in your confidence, defense, attacks and toughness out there. You will be a force to reckon with in 2017. I see many gold medals ahead for you. Keep it up buddy!
Mahmoud Elgamal – It took a sneaky choke you’ve never seen to stop you from reaching the podium. You were tearing through your opponents! Awesome watching you compete and I look forward to you being a dominant force in 2017. Very impressed by your dedication and mindset. Warrior!
Alex Pattison – Great BJJ tournament debut man! You showed excellent control, technique and calmness out there. I missed your last match but I know anything that catches you once won’t likely catch you again that’s for sure. I look forward to your next competition!
Lam Ngo – Lam, congrats on your Bronze and nice work in the absolute. You’re game looked aggressive, tight and very technical. One or two adjustments that we talked about and that guard will be ultra tough to pass. Very impressed by your performances this weekend.
Jon Agnew – Holy smokes! back to competing and you take on the champ first match. So impressed bro. You held your own, did some great attacks and escapes and was so close to that pass at the end. A couple of small tweaks as you get used to the increased pace of competition and you’ll be even tougher out there. Watch out!
Amr Ghoneim – Your game is looking more complete with every week that passes and it really showed this weekend. Very exciting to watch you compete and fun to coach from the side. You have grown into one of the toughest Blue Belts in the province in a very short time at the belt. Keep askin questions, training hard and pushing yourself. Can’t wait to see what your future holds.
Khaled Ramadan – You’re half guard was on fire! The improvements you have made in the last year are phenomenal. So happy to see your game shine this weekend! Let’s get that conditioning to the next level and your opponent’s will suffer Very impressed by what you did out there, keep up the great work!
Victoria Meng – What a killer instinct! Great debut into the BJJ tournament scene. You set a goal and killed it. Congrats on the Silver. I know you will continue to train hard and I have no doubt that Gold will be around your neck soon. Very happy to have you as a part of our team.
Dana Del Fabbro – Congrats on the Gold. After a dominating first match and win for you, I watched your next opponent and thought this next one is going to be tough! Then you come out and dominate again! You have a great combination of intelligence, toughness, stubbornness and fire inside you. Never lose that. You proved you are ready for the next level, keep training hard and you will without a doubt climb to the top of your next division as well.
Ryan Anderson – Your hard work and dedication has molded you into an ultra tough grappler in both training and competition. As a coach you make my job easy Your style, toughness, skill and belief in yourself has helped you rise to the top of your division. You are ready to take the next step. Train hard and you will without a doubt become a champ at your next belt level.
Dan Carter – You are a beast! Consistence will come my friend, keep training hard, create good game plans and work hard to stick to them. You are becoming very tough to roll with in the gym. Once that relaxed game transfer over into competition you’re opponents will be in a lot of trouble!
Adriano D’Alessandro – Great job at your very first tournament! such a close match. Your opponent felt your base, strength and toughness. Every tournament gets easier with experience. Keep training hard and testing yourself on that mats. You are a great role model for you kids and an inspiration to us at the gym.
Great work everyone!
