This past weekend Hector Wong (of North Vancouver BJJ) traveled to San Jose, California to compete in the US Open XVI Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Tournament, one of the top tournaments in the sport. He entered the senior blue belt light featherweight (141 pound) division and he placed 2nd. He then competed in his Open Division which includes competitors of all weight classes. Entering as the lightest guy he fought much larger opponents (including a 270 pounder!) and placed 3rd overall. I am glad to have helped Hector with his physical preparation for this tournament. He brings an incredible work ethic and dedication to his training and we can see how this brings its rewards.
Hector sent along several videos from his matches in the tournament:
