2010 Jiu-Jitsu Pan American Team Results


This year's Pan Ams had over 2800 athletes from all over the USA, Canada, Brazil, Mexico and several other countries from Latin America. Our team traveled down to Irvine, California this past weekend a brought home 5 medals out of 7 competitors. 1 Gold, 1 Silver and 3 Bronze.

Stockton's CGJJA Association Representative Ernest Mello, repeated last year's feat and won Gold in the Ultra Heavyweight Division, this time as a Brown Belt.

Brown Belt Ryan Murphy, also repeated last year's feat and won the Bronze in the LightHeavyweight Master Division, after three matches.

Chuck Walker, also CGJJA Association Representative, won Silver in the Brown Belt Senior Middleweight Division.

Jeff Maurer displayed beautiful technique in the Blue Belt Division and ended up with the Bronze in the Lightweight Senior division.

And finally, white belt Ricardo Urrea, also won the Bronze Medal but in the Middle-Heavy Novice Division.

Adam Dunkel, last year's Middle Weight Gold Medal winner and this year's Purple Belt division favorite, was winning his first match by points, when he submitted his opponent. The move, however, wasn't allowed in his division, so Adam got disqualified. IBJJF rules have changed and apparently we weren't notified.

Blue Belt Ian Summit fought hard but ended up losing in the first match to the division gold medal winner.

We are very glad to see our team place in several different division at such high competitive levels. Congrats to all competitors and to those who were there to help them prepare these past few months.

Next up is the World Championships in Long Beach on June 3, 4, 5 and 6. We expect to see the same dedication and team effort to maximize our results.
