Ms. Danielle Alvarez and Ms. Natalia Shepler, both fighting out of Alvarez BJJ in Arlington TX, fought their hearts out today as they each took Gold at the 2014 IBJJF Europeans in Lisbon, Portugal! Ms. Natalia won 4 fights today with a Sleeve Choke Submission Victory in her Finals match and Ms. Danielle won 3 matches with her go to Bow N Arrow Choke in the Semi Finals and a 10-4 victory in the Finals!
They are both fresh off a great year in 2013 where they both took home the honors of a 2013 TXMMA Competitor of the Year Award. They did not just sit back on their accomplishments. They both got right out there in the highest level of competition, in one of the biggest and most prestigious tournaments of 2014, against some of the best Europe has to offer.
