I am so proud of my eleven year old nephew, Adam! He took first place in his division in the
7th Annual Best of the West Championships. This is one of the most competitive and well-attended jiu-jitsu tournaments on the West Coast. As some of you know, I am a fan of mixed martial arts (MMA). The sport combines striking and grappling techniques, and Jiu-jitsu is the foundation for grappling and submissions. Athletes put in countless hours perfecting their technique, conditioning, and mental discipline. Way to go, Adam!
