On Saturday, April 28, 2012, one of Brazilian Top Team Plano's members participated in the 1st annual Samurai Gi Challenge in Keller, Texas. The event for kids and teens was a round-robin style Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournament operated under IBJJF rules and divisions.
Our team member, David Ray, represented the school in the 6-7 year old (45-55 lbs.) bracket. David stayed focused, fought hard, executed top-level techniques and showed respect on the mats. In other words, David was the embodiment of what we encourage all of our students to be.
At the conclusion of the day's tournament matches, David finished 4-0 and won his division! We are very proud of him!
At BTT Plano, we believe in building the team starting with our youth. Brazilian Top Team jiu jitsu for kids is the foundation that has made BTT what it is today. Our kids jiu jitsu program will continue to grow thanks to dedicated instructors like Diego Gamonal, Guto Neto and Kale Sims and fantastic students like David Ray.
Once again, congratulations to David for his awesome efforts on and off the mat. VIVA DAVID!!!!!!
