Team Genesis sent out it’s first set of competitors this weekend to the Premier Event in the Pacific North West, the North West BJJ Championship’s in Vancouver, WA. It was a great event for the team who’s members included Raul Hernandez, Coach Jason “Rucock” Rueck, and Head Coach Jason Gagnon.
Raul lost a hard fought first match, but demonstrated excellent guard control. Fighting for the bronze he executed a brilliant half guard sweep right to mount to clinch a come from behind victory.
Coach Rucock again demonstrated why he is a force to be reckoned with in the featherweight blue belt division. Winning all 3 of his first matches decisively he had a great fight in the finals, with some very questionable reffing resulting in a very narrow defeat.
Head Coach Jason was able to submit both of his opponents in the Brown Belt Feather weight division to secure Genesis’s first gold medal for the competition team.
As team we are growing stronger day by day, and look forward to continuing to execute our training on the competition scene!
Great Work everyone! Osss
