Xande has a "connection" to our club as he was the man who awarded a blue belt to one of our coaches here (Coach Mandeng)! He was also the instructor of Coach Mandeng's instructor Sean Bansfield. So that's kinda cool, I think!
Anyway, the last time Xande won gold at the prestigious BJJ Mundials was way back in 2008! To win again after so many years down the road speaks volumes of the man's jiu-jitsu prowess and never-say-die attitude! Definitely inspiring and motivational as well.
