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.
October 16th marked 2nd day of the US Open XV; held in Santa Cruz California. Local boy Jeremy Montes Jr from the Claudio Franca BJJ Academy showed up with 3 other team-mates to represent the Juvenile Division Team Competition. The Claudio Franca Juvenile Team took the 2nd place trophy with 3 Gold Medals and 1 Bronze.
