Last weekend, CTA Irving sent a small group of competitors to the Comerica Center in Frisco for our last tournament of the year and all of them performed magnificently! We had 1 youth and 5 adults students competing and each of them carried a personal story going into their matches.
For some, it was a new test – their first chance to test themselves at a new rank or first tournament ever. Challenges like these teach us so much about ourselves and our preparation, so this was awesome to see from Irfan and Eva.
Aaron and Nathan both wanted to improve from their last tournament. These guys worked extremely hard for weeks leading up to the event and their progress is undeniable at this point. They were much more composed, technical and methodical this time around – just as they’d planned – and Nate even earned himself a Gold Medal for winning his division!
Nick and Christi both jumped back onto the mat after incredible busy years on the personal front. Both have made incredible leaps in their professional lives, yet still carved out the time for themselves and their love for Jiu-Jitsu. They closed out 2022 with a bang and already have goals set for 2023!
Congratulations again to you guys! Time to start working toward February!
