Two competitions took place 2 weeks apart from each other, which are the Copa da Malasia 14 and Malaysian Grappling League (MGL) on the 19th & 20th of March and 2nd & 3rd of April respectively.
Copa da Malasia is a tournament recognised by the Malaysian Jiu-Jitsu Federation.
Three of the grapplers who train with us, namely Jinyoung Kim, Chin Hong, and Gabe Chew were set to compete.
On the first day, the category for MALE GI / BLUE / MASTER 2 (36+) / -88,3 KG (MEDIUM HEAVY) took place.
Jinyoung Kim defeated Dr Jason Leong in both matches to secure the gold medal.
Yes, THAT Dr Jason Leong. His Jiujitsu and pressure is no joke!
Moving on to the second day, Chin Hong and Hanniel Thomas competed in the MALE NO-GI / PURPLE / ADULT / -61,0 KG (LIGHT FEATHER) category.
Chin Hong defeated Hanniel in straight sets to win gold in the category.
In the next category, Gabe Chew took on Alexander Lew in the final of the MALE NO-GI / WHITE / ADULT / -61,0 KG (LIGHT FEATHER) category.
Alexander won via submission, and that concluded that match with Gabe winning silver.
