The BJJ Beginners Open was held this Saturday, all the way over at the distant town of Ageo, somewhere in Saitama. Triforce members met up on a very cold morning in Ikebukuro and caught the train, then taxi up to the venue.
Despite being faaaaar away, the Ageo Martial Arts hall is the business. The Mat quality is top, the space is great, and as you would expect it’s super clean and tidy. We did continue to struggle with the cold though, with some of the guys starting to warm up very quickly in order to take the edge off!
A number of the Triforce guys managed to have successful fights and medal. From Ikebukuro, Takayama and Sakamoto san had excellent performances, not to mention some of the guys from Triforce Aoyama – congratulations to all!
