It's been a great few weeks for Team Rolljunkie Competitors.
After an awesome showing at Grappler's Quest the week before, ADCC America in Flushing, NY turned out to be another great event. Rolljunkie had a booth setup and we met some great jiu-jitsu people. Thanks to everyone who stopped to say hello. The team also performed well. Gordon Ryan took home first in the pro no gi division. Frank Rosenthal took home gold in the pro no gi and purple belt gi divisions. This after winning gold with five submissions a few weeks earlier at the Lehigh Valley Open. Mike Padilla won his division as well, brown belt gi. In addition, Garry Tonon took home second in pro no gi absolute after two tough battles with a heavier DJ Jackson (other match was a super fight). Also, we want to say congratulations to Anthony Garavalia from KOA team for taking home gold along with fastest sub in the blue belt division at The Good Fight in VA.
Following ADCC, we were also very happy to see Mike Padilla (Renzo Gracie, PA) promoted to jiu-jitsu black belt. It's an awesome accomplishment so big congratulations to him!!!
