    Nathan Mendelsohn's American BJJ Player Blog: San Diego Pro Trials This Saturday, My Biggest Challenge Yet!

    Thu, 2012-03-08 21:34 — Nathan Mendelsohn

     Hey everybody!
     
    This Saturday is the Abu Dhabi Pro Trials in San Diego and It looks like my division is shaping up to be the toughest and most exciting of the entire event!!
     
    I'm competing in the 163 and below Brown and Black Belt division among some of the best competitors in the world including Kron Gracie, Zak Maxwell, Mike Fowler, Marcos Torregrosa and Ryan Beauregard. Also in the division are some of my rivals in Tim Peterson, Ryan Sosa, Beneil Dariush and Tanner Rice, any of which I would love to have a rematch against.

    Nathan Mendelsohn's American BJJ Player Blog: Gettin' a Tune Up with Caio Terra Before SF Open!

    Thu, 2012-02-23 14:06 — Nathan Mendelsohn

     Hey everybody!
     
    Yesterday I got the chance to get a tune up before this weekend's tournament with multiple time black belt world champion Caio Terra. Also in attendance were tough black belts and good friends Augusto Queixinho, Samir Chantre, and Flavio Meier. The training session was killer and I've already felt my game get tighter from training with these high level athletes.
     

    Nathan Mendelsohn's American BJJ Player Blog: Pan Kids and SF Open

     Hey everybody!!
     
    I had the pleasure this past weekend of traveling down to Los Angeles to watch the Pan Kids tournament at Cal State Dominguez Hills. The level of Jiu-Jitsu displayed by these children always amazes me. I didn't even start Jiu-Jitsu until I was ten years old and some of these kids are younger than that and have games that make them look like little purple belts. Our team did really well earning the top spot in the mighty might division and taking home the third place trophy for the Pee Wees.

    Nathan Mendelsohn's American Jiu-Jitsu Player Blog: US Open Bronze

    Tue, 2011-10-18 21:30 — Nathan Mendelsohn

    The 2011 US Open this past weekend was an awesome event, even though I wasn't able to secure the result I had hoped for.
     
    I ended up winning my first fight 5 to 0 and losing my second fight 4 to 2 for a bronze medal. I then went on to fight the open division with a similar result of winning my first match and losing my second.

    Nathan Mendelsohn's American Jiu-Jitsu Player in Brazil Blog Entry #8: My time with Italo Lins and Coming Back Home

    Fri, 2011-09-23 16:09 — Nathan Mendelsohn

     Hey everybody!
     
    This past week was my last in Brazil before coming back to the states and I spent it with my good friend, black belt Italo Lins of GFTEAM, and his family in the neighborhood of Caxias near the international airport. Italo Lins had just arrived in Brazil after spending six months in the United States, two of which he spent at my house in Santa Cruz. He competed various tournaments while in the US and came back with many new titles, including Champion of the recent Las Vegas Open.
