On February 5th, the Future Champions of Gracie Barra Springfield and their counterparts from Gracie Barra Bloomington gathered for a tournament
which provided an epic display of Jiu-Jitsu prowess.
When staff at the school asked the kids if they were ready there was a resounding and confidant, “Yes!” Each match was just amazing to watch whether the competitor was wearing a brand new white belt or was a “veteran” yellow belt. The parents, friends and fellow students cheered on each match with helpful words and encouragement to keep going!
Twenty-eight first, second and third place medals were awarded to our champions. The most important lesson learned by the Future Champions was that for this tournament, it did not matter whether you won or lost but that you had fun. For more info, graciespringfield.com.
