Many of you may have heard that Clark Gracie won in his division last week at the 2013 IBJJF Pan Tournament. The victory was incredible and Clark deserved it after putting in countless hours of hard work really turning up his competition training over the past year. Clark was able to secure a choke in the last minute of the match to put Marcelo Mafra to sleep and win the tournament. We are all very proud of Clark and welcome his return to teaching on Thursday, April 4th at 6:15. Clark’s final match can be seen below:

After a lot of anticipation, students showed up for a great night of training at Clark’s first class on Wednesday night. We started off with a hard NoGi training session and transitioned into a second Gi class after everybody was good and warmed up. Clark will be there for another great night this coming Wednesday. See you all there on the mat!
