Last Saturday, two members of the Therien Chesterville Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program joined some other members of the Therien-Gringo team at the Grappling Industries tournament in Lake George. Siblings Val and Nick had a very successful day. After a number of hard fought fights, here are the results:
- Nick: Gold in no-gi 15-17, 145lbs+ and Silver in men’s 140-155lbs
- Val: Gold in both gi and no-gi women 105-120lbs
Val and Nick both commit a number of hours training both in our regular BJJ classes on Wednesdays and Saturdays in Chesterville, as well as classes at Therien Jiu-Jitsu Orleans and whatever other extra seminars they can find. Their hard work and dedication make them an inspiration and leaders for other students working to accomplish their goals.
Congratulations Nick and Val!!!
