As you know I was not able to make it to New York City for today’s 2008 Pan-Ams of No-Gi Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. While it’s good that the United States Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation is expanding out of its regular tournament venues here in Southern California, it means I can’t be there in person to report on things for you!
However, luckily The FightWorks Podcast has great friends and family members of Mighty 600,000 we can count on for help.
Andrew Correa is a big friend of The FightWorks Podcast and has been so since I was a blue belt a long time ago in Northern Virginia before our show was even born. He now runs JiuJitsu Now and is a referee at most IBJJF and USJJF events.
THANK YOU ANDREW FOR THESE UPDATES!
