Our PJ Jiujitsu Club members had a nice get-together at the recent BJJ competition held at the KL Convention Centre (at KLCC). Organized by Monarchy MMA, many BJJ enthusiasts were there to participate.
Only white and blue belts were allowed to compete, and our team member Leonard tried his hand competing for the first time under the 70kg blue belt category. Leo fought hard against his opponents but was not able to gain victory. Nevertheless it was good experience for him as he regroups and trains harder for the next competition.
Overall the competition was fun, saw many good matches. The venue at the Convention Centre was not bad, but the air conditioning was super cold, making it slightly difficult for competitors to warmup. Also, they had only ONE competition area, so contestants had to wait ages before they could get to their matches. Hopefully the organizer will set up at least two competition areas in the future.

Our friend and former member William also competed (88kg blue belt), in the gi and nogi categories, and went home with two silver medals. Congrats, buddy!
