2011 Pan Asian Jiu Jitsu international.

Just a short note here. About 12 of us from the academy found ourselves in Manila on June 18-19, for the 2011 Pan Asian Jiu Jitsu international competition. At the ripe old age of 40 I competed against some younger guys. I only had 2 matches : won the 1st one and lost the 2nd one.

The team performed beyond expectations with a total haul of 15 medals including 4 Golds. Team work and camaraderie was excellent and played a huge role in the team's success. A word of thanks also goes out to our coach Marcos Escobar for cornering all of us during our fights (and for enduring our silly mistakes during the fights) AND to the other team members who although did not join us in Manila, gave us their time in helping us prepare.
