    Hey guys!!

    A couple weeks back I was given the honor of fighting in the Black Belt Grand Prix at Renzo Gracie’s World Jiu-Jitsu Expo. I had five matches and ended up making it all the way to the semi-finals, making for probably the best performance of my first year at black belt. I had two submissions, one win on points, one loss to Jackson Sousa (video below) by 3-3 on points and 2-1 on advantages and then unfortunately I lost the semi-final to a really tough and humble competitor in James Puopolo by 4-0. Below is the video of my first fight from the event. Stay tuned as I will be posting the rest of the fights here “em breve”. Osssssssssssss

    Nathan Mendelsohn's American BJJ Player Blog: Back to the States in time to Take Gold at the US Open!

    Hey guys!
    A few weeks ago I returned to the states with a fresh injury over my eye to remember my trip by. The doctor said a whole month without training for risk of re-opening the gash and with the US Open right around the corner I was forced to try to stay in shape without any jiu-jitsu training. I did not want to miss the event since it promised to be an awesome one this year and thus I went about doing my best to prepare without doing any jiu-jitsu sparring. Instead I did lots of Crossfit, drilling and circuit training. When going to compete a jiu-jitsu event there is no replacement for jiu-jitsu training but even without a single sparring session in a month I still went into the event confident in my skills and was able to come out with the gold in my division against a tough opponent in Romulo Melo (video above). Even in winning I didn't feel my game was that sharp nor did I feel as physically prepared as I usually am but I still decided to go for the Absolute division as well and came up against another tough opponent in Julian Marquez, a match that didn't end up going the way I wanted it to partially because of a mistake I made which created an opportunity for Julian that he took with everything he had. The loss in the open put a bit of a damper on my win in my division but I'm still glad I took part in this awesome event. Now I'm going to get back to training jiu-jitsu while still putting a heavy focus on physical training and weightlifting between now and the end of the year so that I can hit the ground running next year, stronger than ever! May also make an appearance at another tournament or two before the holidays if possible as well :)
