Matt had a Jiu-Jitsu tournament yesterday and it took him all week to prepare to weigh in at 169.9lbs. He managed to lose the 12 pounds needed by eating nothing but plain chicken breasts, drinking cayenne laced water and attending daily work outs. By the end of the 7 days he looked as though he had lived through Auschwitz (and kept his a tan.)
Saturday morning he went up against other blue belts in his weight class and came in 4th place. I am very proud of him and even more happy that he was able to fight without getting hurt. Phew.
Here is a video that one of his class mates took since I wasn't able to attend the meet.
