Unfortunately yours truly is flat ass broke so I do not have a first person account of the 2011 No Gi Worlds like I had planned for most of the year! But thankfully with the world wide intertube info is just a click away.
Wanted to throw a huge congrats out to Ace Jiu Jitsu and there fighters who kicked ass at the No Gi World Championships in Long Beach, CA. over the weekend. Co-owners Chris Thue and Asa Fuller won their respective weight categories at the black belt level. Where Mat Hwang took home the gold in the 175# brown belt division! This is Mat's biggest win and coach Tim Cartmell mentioned he could not be prouder. Look for Mat to receive his black belt from Tim next month becoming Tim's first black belt!
