Rafael Lovato Jr. - Monday, September 19, 2016

*Pictured above: Zach C (Top L), Dallas N (Bottom L), Dylan N (Top R), Von Wood (Middle R), & Tyler E (Bottom R)

It's that time of year for the IBJJF Dallas Open, & this year we had several competitors make the journey to test themselves. We would like to recognize all our warriors who represented Team Lovato / Lovato Jiu Jitsu this past weekend. There were tons of very close, hard fought matches over the two day event from both gi as well as no gi. Our standouts for the weekend were Lovato Jiu Jitsu Purple Belt Zach Coffee (currently training at Kingdom Jiu Jitsu in Garland, TX) who had a Gold (No Gi) & Bronze (Gi) performance; Coach Dallas Niles, Dylan Nguyen, Von Wood, & Tyler Elerick who all were able to secure the Bronze medals in their respective divisions. All of these competitors have been so consistent in their training, & we would like to congratulate all of them on their efforts!

You too can learn from Professor Rafael Lovato Jr, Professor Justin Rader, & many of our other World Class Instructors at Lovato's School of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu & Mixed Martial Arts by filling out the 30 Day FREE Trial box at the bottom of the page or by giving us a call to schedule an appointment at 405-466-5222.
