Eventful Week! & More To Come!

We have had an eventful week here at NLKB Starkville.

Earlier last week we had Tammy Griego visit our academy for a wonderful 2 hour seminar followed by rolling. She showed two guard passes, a flow drill that attacked each limb on the body, and then went into depth about concepts and teaching skills. She made it a point that we must rely on each other to get better. Also, thank you to NLKB CAFB and Vector Jiu Jitsu for coming out and supporting this last minute seminar!

Also, we had a couple of promotions! Congratulations to Peyton Poole and Brandon Davis. Peyton is now assisting the Kids’ Class on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Brandon is getting ready for his next fight which will be in Jackson, MS this summer.

This past weekend, Jae McIntosh, Jessica Dobbs, and Gus Strobel (from NLKB Brandon/HQ), traveled to Dallas, TX to compete at the AGF Blue/Purple Belt Invitational. This was a no time limit, submission only tournament. Jae McIntosh earned 2nd place, submitting all of his first two matches under 60 seconds, his 3rd in under 2 and a half minutes, and lost in the finals after a 10 minute war.

Also, this weekend, the NLKB HQ hosted Israel Gomes for a seminar. Many were stripe promoted, so congratulations, family!
