Mike Atkin – Executive – Advanced No Gi Open – 1st Place
Just one week after opening, 88 Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu scored its first championship… A BIG congratulations goes out to “Iron” Mike Atkin who drove down south for NAGA’s 3rd Annual Georgia Grappling Championship. Mike competed in the Executive division and defeated his finals opponent 6-0. He then went on to compete in the Advanced 189.9 lbs division and lost a close match 4-2. Much respect to Mike for not being content with one GOLD medal but stepping up and competing in his first advanced division despite being 50 years old. Look for Mike to continue his winning ways at this weekend’s Grapplers Quest tournament.
