Huntington Beach, California, last Sunday. This place is famous for its surf competitions, but this weekend it held the Pan American Grappling Games (No GI – WGG) . One of our guys from San Pedro brought two medals home.
Weighing only 125 lbs. and 15 years old, Zach Heath placed second on the open weight and third in the -130lbs. @ Teens 15 to 17 beginners at the Fountain Valley High School. Zach trains with Pedro Soriano in our club in the city of San Pedro, and is one of the promising teenagers in our team. Cheers!
With the expansion of our network we are having people competing simultaneously in tournaments all over the World. This weekend our guys from Johannesburg Tap Out academy came back home with some medals from Durban. I still do not have complete details but our team had only 5 competitors and placed second overall, bringing a few golds and silvers. I will soon have more info from South Africa and write another post telling the whole story.
