Today in NYC was the day for the white-belts in the gi to strut their stuff and the open tournament for the blue-belts. It’s a different vibe for folks entering the mats for the first time — they still have everything to prove, and the apprehension can be felt in the air, yet there were some great matches on the mats along with the folks in blue.
After lunchtime, the mats got cleared for the folks not wearing a gi and the day went for Devhonte Johnson from Unity, who got the Super Heavy win and closed the Open class with teammate Felipe Silva. Anton Berzin from Balance, who won in Heavy, and Gabriel Almeida from CheckMat put up good fights with the Unity guys.
