NAGA Phoenix

Life has been hectic the last couple days.  Last Saturday NAGA Grappling Tournament was at Phoenix College, some of my teammates and sponsored athletes went to work.  The tournament was as chaotic as ever, despite that there was some very  entertaining matches. sponsored athletes Christian and Xavier Castillo and Andre Rodriguez were among my teammates that competed.  Christian captured the NoGi belt and Xavier took Silver.  Andre competed in the expert division and had some great matches.

Other highlights from the tournament were Luis Quezada and Yesenya Villafuerte both capturing double gold in both the NoGi and GI divisions.  Kent “Smokey” Stonebreaker jumped for gold as he put his opponent to sleep with a flying guillotine in the NoGi division and fell just short in the GI.  Logan Jewell lost his semi final match to a Black Belt in the NoGi but went on to capture the Purple Belt Gold Medal in the GI division.  Sergio Castillo (1 silver, 1 bronze), Joseph Gutierrez (I think 1 gold), Sean Downie,(1 silver, 1 bronze) and Johnny Moses (1 gold, 1 silver, 1 bronze) were some of the others representing Lotus Club this weekend.
