August 2, 2014, was the 2014 IBJJF Toronto Open that was held inside Ryerson University in downtown Toronto. Competitors from all over Canada along with a few from the United States came to test their skills to see who would take home the Gold.
Professor Danny Alvarez, owner and head instructor of Alvarez Jiu Jitsu in Arlington TX, traveled to Toronto to test skills once again for the 2nd consecutive year. Professor Alvarez had a tough fight with Mr. Albert Fung, fighting out of the Toronto BJJ academy in Toronto, CA. Professor Alvarez was able to sweep his opponent within a few minutes of the match to score 2 points. Professor then continued to look score again by passing his opponents guard but was only able to score Advantages for the attempts. The final score was 2-0 with Professor Alvarez getting his hand raised in victory again to make him a 2X IBJJF Toronto Open Black Belt Champion. Professor Alvarez also took Gold at the IBJJF Toronto Open in 2013.
Professor Alvarez is always looking to test himself on the competition scene to see where his game needs to improve. This was Professor Alvarez’s 4th Gold Medal of 2014 as he took Gold at the IBJJF Boston, Houston and now Toronto Open along with Gold at the 5 Grappling event in Dallas. Professor Alvarez has also taken home the Bronze Medal at the 2014 IBJJF European Open in Lisbon, Portugal and the Silver Medal at the 2014 IBJJF Paris Open in Paris, France.
Congrats again to Professor Alvarez on another great victory and showing once again how to Lead by Example.
