Ralph Gracie Kids Shine at the All America’s Tournament

On January 26 & 27, our kids competed in gi and no-gi at the NABJJF All America’s Tournament in Los Angeles. Bringing home the gold in the kids division were Ruben Martos-Reyes for no-gi, Carson Contreras and Robbie and Ryan Allen for both Gi and No-Gi. Since they are brothers and had both defeated the people they went against, they shared the honors of 1st and 2nd place in both Gi and No-Gi. Bringing home silver in the Gi Division were Ruben Martos-Reyes and Victor Bonato.  In the Juvenile Division, McKenna Hutchison, who is a 13-year-old orange belt, had to compete in a higher division with 15-year-old blue belts.  McKenna was able to defeat everyone in those divisions taking home gold medals in Gi and No-Gi and Gi and No-Gi Absolute Divsions for a total of 4 gold medals! I don’t think we have ever had someone bring home quadruple Gold! Congrats to everyone who competed and a big thank you to our black belt Gabriel Costa, who spent his entire weekend coaching our students at the tournament. Next up is the Kids Pan Ams! Go Team Ralph Gracie!
