Matty takes 4th

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.

This brought back memories of companionship wrestling. :) I put a whole through a wall once while trying to get leverage on Matt. (The memories were good, the pain has been forgotten obviously). Hope all is well for you guys and glad to see Matt's still as strong as ever.
