Katie Oliphant has won her last 3 grappling competitions!

A small squad from Crazy 88 traveled this weekend to Richmond, Virginia to compete in a NAGA tournament, which included Aung La, Katie Olphant, and Big Sal.    Aung la had one match in NoGi advanced in which he submitted his opponent with an armbar winning the Advanced Belt.  He also faced a black belt and purple belt in the Gi to win the Gi division as well.  Katie performed well against her opponent and after ending up on the feet for a while she pulled guard escaping her opponents guard pass attempts ending on top defending a triangle attempt with the victory by escaping and passing the guard.  Big Sal got to the tournament late so missed the NO-Gi divisions did masters and adult purple belt in which he placed double second.

All in all it was a great tournament for the team to get experience in for the more advanced competitions and especially for the MMA guys who have been doing the MMA grind it was nice to get some GI in.  Congrats to all that competed and Katie for being a on a win streak.

Coach Aung won the Expert No-Gi and the Purple Belt Gi
