BY ALFONSO WASHINGTON – This weekend Crazy 88 Owings Mills and Crazy 88 Elkridge teamed up for some fun this weekend at a local tournament in Harrisburg, Pennyslvania. Also joining us was the Hall Family who competed in the next room – we did not know they were there until the end of the tournament.
Fighting this weekend was Nadir, Jeff Mueller and myself. Nadir had some tough matches but ended up taking 3rd, because of the double elimination rules he was able to get about 5 matches that day, not a bad day at all!!!
The gang decided to eat at the local restaurant, and Sal in his crazy fashion by the time food was ordered scarfed down a full plate within 30 minutes of his match.
Next up was myself who came for a superfight, it went well I won the match via key lock about half way through the match. I’m glad I had an opponent to fight and it was fun. I was given a plaque labelled super-fit instead of super-fight but all the same anyway = ).
Last but not least my manager Jeff Mueller was up and he had 4 tough matches to win the tournament.
All and all the team did very well and a great showing from Crazy 88 with 100% medal rate including the young kids earlier. Every tournament should be looked at as a positive learning experienced win or lose. This tournament was great for that and inspiring again the love of Jiu-Jitsu and competition which is what drives the Crazy 88 team.
Until the next time thanks for listening and on to the next journey and hard training!! OSS!!!!
