I wanted to congratulate everyone on their jiu jitsu performances, both near and far, this past weekend. Barbara Lance and Fredrica Introne both took home Silver. Kevin Wehrle, competing for the first time at jiu jitsu after 4 months of training took home the Bronze. David Pitchford took home Silver competing for the first time at blue belt. David Strickland, also debuting at blue belt, went 2 and 2 for the day which easily could have been 4 and 0 with a few tweaks. Eli Gaugush and Michael Davidson also had some impressive matches. I am very proud of all of you guys and gals and I am proud to call you students and friends.
