Yesterday I shot the IBJJF NY Spring OPEN. There were some great matches, especially in the Black Belt division. While there were few competitors in the BB divisions, it allowed for a more energetic open weight bracket with some notable match ups. For the triangle fans out there... I must have counted 30+ triangle finishes.
It was definitely a challenge fighting the poor lighting in the arena, but adapting is all part of the game. Each event I am learning more, and I will figure out a better system to capture the FighterPlus fans. Hopefully along the way, you will come up and say hi, and I will be able to look out for you on the mats.
I apologize if I missed anyone // and as always, if you see someone you recognize, please tag them for me! Please use hashtag #fighterplus so I can see who to look for out there at the next tournament. Please feel free to suggest events in the NY and New England areas as well, as I would love to cover them.
