Mat action at the Long Island Pride XIV

The 5th anniversary of the Long Island Pride Championship was celebrated with style. With more than 60 schools participating and athletes from eight US states, Brazil and the UAE, Pride XIV was held at York College, in Jamaica, NY, last March 3rd. With technological novelties, such as a TV screen in each ring and two extra screens at the concentration area, the event had a non stop day of fights with a high level of technique and passion for the gentle art.

The winner of the promotion “PRIDE brings you to California” was Sherwin Goddard, a blue belt from Marcelo Garcia academy. He will travel to the 5th American Cup, in San Jose, with all expenses paid. Matt Darcy, a black belt from Guerrilla BJJ, the winner of the last promotion, won his division, He brought back to California the lightweight title, a PRIDE certificate, an event t-shirt and the latest GRACIEMAG issue.

Promoters Milton Regis and Eloy Santos would like to say thanks to everyone that helped to build PRIDE reputation and the success, year after year, since 2007. Pride XV  is already set for June 24th, at the War Memorial, in Danbury, CT. For more info, go to www.lipridebjj.com
