Coaches Bill and Michelle took a last minute flight down to Atlanta, Georgia to compete in the IBJJF Atlanta International Spring Open.
Bill suffered a knee injury and had to miss his semifinals match, placing 3rd place in black belt master 2 heavy.
Michelle had a successful campaign in adult brown belt heavy, beating last years’ double gold medalist at the IBJJF World Championships by submission for the gold medal, and finishing second in the open weight bracket with a very close final lost only by 2 points.
A significant event, being that this was the first time that Bill and Michelle medaled at the same tournament!
