BJJAA dominates blue belt division and wins best BJJ team

posted in: bjj, bjjamsterdam, bjjtournament 0

On Sunday 27 March Checkmat Amsterdam participated in the Den Haag BJJ Open tournament.

Just like last year at the BJJ Holland Open we became the best BJJ team of the tournament. In the blue belt division, we won each category that had competitors from our Academy. The featherweight division was once again closed out. This time Windy and Daniël made their ways to final.

We are extremely happy with the results of everyone. Not all competitors got a medal, but everybody did manage to win a match. In total we won 5 Gold medals, 3 Silver and 2 Bronze and thereby becoming the best BJJ team of the tournament.

Another nice achievement was our white belt student Brandon winning the advanced nogi -73 kg division, where he beat several colored belts on his way to Gold. In the grappling part of the tournament we won 1 Gold, 1 Silver and 1 Bronze medal.

This is our second best team prize in less than 2 years, which reflects our goal of becoming the best Academy where everybody can reach their full potential.
