Professor Easton Competing in Brazil!
Professor Amal Easton is competing at the Master & Senior Mundials in Brazil this weekend!
On Saturday, Professor Amal had four fights, winning the first three by points and losing a close fight by 2 points (takedown) and 2 advantages in the finals. Congratulations on Senior 1 2nd place!!! The Absolutes will be taking place today and I will update the post when I get the results. Best of luck to Professor Easton today!
UPDATE: Professor Easton has just completed his matches and he placed 3rd in the Senior 1 Absolutes! Professor Amal finished his first two opponents with reverse armbars and almost caught his third opponent with one, before losing on points. Amal said the competition was very tough and he appreciates all the good training with the students, coaches and professors getting him ready. Look for an article from him after he gets back to Colorado, it should be very insightful. Big congratulations again to Professor Easton!
