2018 IBJJF Pans Update: Yesterday was the first day of the 2018 IBJJF Pan Jiu Jitsu Championships in Irvine, CA. This is the second most important tournament in Jiu Jitsu where competitors from all over the World come to compete.
Diego Vasquez, fighting out of Alvarez BJJ in Arlington TX won 2 matches then came up short in the semi finals to take home the Bronze Medal. Diego displayed some awesome jiu jitsu by winning his first match by Arm Bar, then winning his second match by 3 Advantages after 3 really good Arm Bar/Triangle Choke attempts.
We look forward to Diego using this as fuel to improve for the ultimate goal which is the IBJJF World Jiu Jitsu Championships in June. Stay tuned for more great things to come from Diego.
