Staying true to his word, Gustavo Dantas brown belt and Nova União standout Christian Broadnax has been busy building back up to his winning form. In a GRACIEMAG interview from a couple months back, the lightweight shared his struggle with keeping his training, school, and job in balance and how his Jiu-Jitsu had been suffering with the juggling act.
Revitalized by a double-gold performance at the 2012 AZ BJJ State Championship, Christian remained adamant about not letting his winning momentum come to a sudden halt. “You either keep going or you quit, and I’m not going to quit. I don’t have that kind of spirit,” stated a more reserved and mature Christian.
With the fire once again lit in his belly, Christian set off to compete at the IBJJF Toronto Open where he was able to claim gold in the lightweight division. The very next weekend, the 18-year-old traveled back down to Southern California to compete at the 2012 Samurai Pro and captured the gold at lightweight there as well.
