The return of IBJJF #111

We kicked off the weekend with the IBJJF (International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation) Austin Open, the organization’s first tournament since Covid-19.

Six Blades Jiu Jitsu also claimed it’s first IBJJF medals finishing 7th overall with Professor Xande leading a small batch of competitors mainly from the Texas area (Team Rabadi, Team Tooke, Six Blades Austin) including my brother Steve representing Six Blades La Quinta. Although it was a small tournament, there was stiff competition due to the layoff brought by the virus. It was also refreshing to see people behaving almost as normal and a sign of good times ahead.

Next week we head to the Oklahoma City Open where another student of mine along with Rafael Lovato Jr and Victor Hugo will be representing the Six Blades association. As always there will be the stresses that come with fighting or spectating followed by good times with friends.
