This past weekend CTA Athletes Joey Tayler, Kaniela Kahuanui, Zandra Fountilla and Yuri Simoes took the the fight to win stage.
Joey Taylor from CTA Affilaite Costa Jiu Jitsu fought well but came up short of the goal, I’m sure he will learn from this and come back even stronger.
From my academy Kaniela Kahuanui was up first and had a tough match with Carlos Diaz. In the end Kaniela took home the unanimous decision!
Zandra Fountilla started off a little slow and after getting caught in an omoplata was able to escape and submit her opponent. Zandra and her whole family continue to get better and can’t wait to see what’s next for her!
In the main event Yuri went to war with Tim Spriggs. This fight was back and forth and in the end Yuri was awarded the victory. This has been a hard year for Yuri filled with many ups and downs. He really committed himself these past few months and I’m so happy for him. It’s time he get a FTW title! Next month he looks to extend history by breaking his own record at no gi worlds!! Can’t wait.
Congrats to everyone who competed and a huge thank you to those who came out in support. None of us can do what we do with out the support and help of all of you! One team, One Family, CTA!
