This past Sunday the Dominion BJJ competition team, along with their fellow Big Brothers competitors fought in the IBJJF Washington DC Open. It was another awesome competition with the crew. Lots of wins, a couple losses, and plenty of great experiences. Every tournament we grow stronger as a team, and that’s what’s most important.
Michelle Welti took double gold in the adult brown belt division. Michelle had one match in her weight class, submitting her opponents with an armbar from the mount. In the open class Michelle had three matches, winning two by submission and one by points.
CJ Paris won his first gold medal! Congratulations CJ on your excellent performance in the men’s master 1 white belt division!
Both Bill Nagle and Isai Cruz placed second, bringing home silvers for the team. Bill fought in the men’s master 2 black belt division and Isai in the adult male white belt division.
Dylan Vandyke showed his heart and newfound wrestling skills, but just barely came up short.
Congrats to everyone who competed and thanks to everyone for coming out to support the team. It means everything.
Big Brothers again finishes the day by taking home the IBJJF Washington DC Open third place team trophy!
