- IN HOUSE TOURNAMENT: ETC Denver is hosting a Flood Relief Benefit In-House Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Tournament on November 2nd. This winter event will be for Adult Gi and No Gi divisions, as well as Kid’s Divisions. Register online OR at the front desk at your local academy.
- MASTERS WORLDS: Everyone competed really well this past weekend at Master’s Worlds in California. The competition was tough and everyone fought like a champ. Even the matches that were lost were close battles that could have gone either way. Make sure to congratulate your Coaches and Professors for going out there and putting it on the line. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu doesn’t end with competitions. Like many martial arts, it is a life long journey with ups and downs. Perseverance through the lows and humility through the highs is the key to success in life. Never forget that and always be prepared to fight another day.
