    NAGA Hawaii
    9/21/02

    September 21, 2002 - The NAGA hosted its 3rd annual Hawaii State Grappling Championship. The event boasted over 160 submission grapplers, who made the journey from all over the Hawaiian Islands.

    Thanks to the support of almost every team in Hawaii, this was the largest mixed grappling contest Hawaii has ever seen to date.

    Competitors grappled with exceptional skill, tenacity, and camaraderie in over 50 divisions. At the end of the day it was clear to all that Hawaiian competitors can stand with any in the world.

    The event was accented by a 4-man professional tournament featuring some of Hawaii`s best fighters. The 4-Man originally scheduled to be an 8-man event was cut back when several of the fighters had to withdraw. Baret Yoshida, 2000 NAGA Superfight Champion had fought in a MMA event a few days earlier and was unable to compete, Steve Hordiniski from Team Relson Gracie injured his knee training for this competition and Bruno Edwlad decided to coach his team of 8 fighters and also helped to referee.

    Round 1 Ron Juhn vs. Anthony Torres

    Ron Juhn, Chief Instructor of the 808 Fight Factory definitely was the
    aggressor in his 1st round match against Anthony Torress from Grappling Unlimited. After several take down attempts from Juhn, Torres was able to get Juhn`s back and sink in a rear naked choke at the 5 minute mark.

    Round 1 Joao Morais vs. Ronn Shirika

    This was by far the closest match of the day. Both fighters set an aggressive pace for the fight. With Shirika obtaining a clean takedown. Morais regained an aggressive guard, attempting some sweeps. In a normal NAGA match this fight would have went to overtime however in Superfight competition overtimes are not allowed. Again a close decision for Shikira.

    FINALS

    Anthony Torres vs. Ronn Shirika

    Another close match that ended in a decisive takedown by Shirika. Shirika took home the Championship Belt.
