2013 IBJJF Miami Open Results for Team Alvarez Jiu Jitsu Arlington TX - October 21, 2013

 

10/19/13, The 2013 IBJJF Miami Open results for Team Alvarez Jiu Jitsu Arlington TX were phenomenal! Team Alvarez BJJ out of Arlington TX, representing Coach Bruno Bastos and   Nova Uniao, sent a small team of 4 competitors to their skills in Miami, Florida. Professor Danny Alvarez and his Lady Warriors (Danielle Alvarez, Natalia Shepler & Miriam Villar) took to the blue and red mats inside the Miami Dade College where they all displayed great and hard fought jiu jitsu.

To start the day off was Ms. Natalia Shepler fighting in the Blue Belt Light Feather Division, where she had 3 matches that were all won in dominate fashion. Ms. Natalia won 2 by  submission and another by points to become the Miami Open Blue Belt Light Feather Champ.

Next up was Ms. Danielle Alvarez, fighting in the Purple Belt Feather Weight Division, where she submitted both of her opponents. She finished both opponents with her favorite Bow and Arrow Choke to become the Miami Open Purple Belt Feather Weight Champ.

Up next, was Ms. Miriam Villar, fighting in the Blue Belt Light Feather Master Division. She had 2 fights, winning one by Arm Bar submission and the other by Points to become the Miami Open Blue Light Feather Master Champion.

With all 3 ladies just taking home the GOLD, Professor Alvarez had a lot of pressure on him to do what the ladies just achieved. Professor Alvarez, fighting in the Black Belt Senior 1 Feather Weight Division, had one fight where he was up by 7 points before submitting his opponent from Puerto Rico with a Brabo Choke to become the Miami Open Black Belt Feather Senior 1 Champ.

After all 4 Team Alvarez BJJ competitors took home the GOLD, you would think the day was over but Ms. Danielle had more left in the tank and threw her hat in the ring for the Purple Belt Absolute division. Danielle had 2 hard fought battles, winning the 1st match by Arm Bar and the 2nd match by Triangle Choke with the Straight Arm Lock. She then came up short against a very tough opponent in the finals to bring home the Silver Medal in the Purple Belt Absolute.

The day along with the weather was perfect for Team Alvarez BJJ Arlington TX in the beautiful city of Miami, Florida at the 2013 IBJJF Miami Open.

Congrats again to all four competitors!
