It's 2016! A couple of our members from PJ Jiujitsu Club decided to take part in the second edition of the Copa de Malasia BJJ competition. It would be their first attempt at competing against players from other clubs.
The event was held at the Jaya Shopping Centre in Section 14 Petaling Jaya. A great venue for a jiu jitsu competition for sure! Indoors, air conditioning, lots of f & b outlets, ample parking....
The competition also had an international flavour with teams and competitors coming from all corners of the world - Vietnam, Cambodia, US, Japan, Singapore, Middle East, Philippines etc.
Rifhan had a match (under 64 kg white belt) in morning portion of the competition. He fought hard against his opponent from GFT but did not manage to win. He eventually lost by points. Vincent fared slightly better (over 65 kg white belt masters) and managed to win by submission in his first match against his opponent from Monarchy. He was unable to repeat the feat in his second match and lost to a player from Cristiano Kamanishi's team.

All in all it was another fun (but stressful and tiring) outing for the team and it would be good for them to compete the next time if opportunity permits.
|All done. Time to go home|
