US Grappling NC State Championships Results

Age Skill Weight Result
Phil Thorn Adult Intermediate Ultra Heavyweight (215+ lbs) 1st
Open 1st
Blue Belt Open 1st

Phil Thorn rematerialized in North Carolina for the US Grappling event held in Morrisville.  Phil went undefeated for the day, winning three Gold medals including the Open division 1st-place medals for the Intermediate No-Gi and and Blue Belt Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.  In the Blue Belt weight class, there were no other Ultra Heavyweights so Phil was unable to get four!

It was a dominating victory.  Phil was unscored upon and won via Rear Naked Choke, 2 Armbars (1 from top, 1 from guard), and 7-0 in the No-Gi divisions.  His Gi opponents were also unable to score on him as he won there by Bread cutter choke, 5-0, 3-0, and 2-0 in the finals.  He exhibited good takedowns, taking all his opponents down that did not pull guard immediately, as well as a variety of different submission holds.  Eight wins to no losses – Not a bad day’s work!

Great job Big Phil!
