For those of you who do not know my background, I am one of the rare few to hold a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt and have a Division I college wrestling background. Let me tell you the transition has not been easy but it has been worth it.
CARSON, California — September 8th and 9th, those were the days of the American Nationals at Cal State Dominquez Hills and if any of you missed either day, Sat gi and Sun no gi, you missed some great matches not to mention some familiar faces making their way back to the grappling scene.
This is Nathan Mendelsohn writing to you from Carson California getting ready to compete tomorrow at noon in the IBJJf US Nationals 2012! I'm set to compete against Brian Morizi in the first round, a tough opponent I've faced twice before at purple belt and its a rematch I'm really looking forward to! I plan on competing weight and absolute and I'll post the results and videos here as soon as possible!! Didn't have a chance to get the new Technique of the Week up before heading down here to LA but I'll put it up as soon as I'm back in Santa Cruz!
