Lots of hardwork put in at the US Grappling tournament this past weekend up in Richmond! All of our competitors had awesome matches that highlighted their strength and skill. The match between Geno Quintin and his opponent was something that was definitely noteworthy. 6 minutes of nonstop pressure, attacking, and escaping multiple submission attempts against a seasoned competitor is something to commend. Escaping from what seemed like the finishing bow and arrow from his opponent, he rolled out and caught his opponent in an armbar. That was the start of their submission exchanges until finally, he was caught in a loop choke. Wonderful show of persistence and good sportsmanship Geno!
A big congratulations to all our competitors for placing in the tournament! Great job Kyle Sablan (1st Men's Beginner No Gi), Brianna Tate (1st Women's Intermediate No Gi, 2nd Women's Blue Belt Gi), Geno Quintin (2nd Men's Purple Belt Gi), and G'Angelo Quintin (2nd Men's Intermediate No Gi, 2nd Men's Blue Belt Gi). Can't wait to see what the next competition brings!
