Tai-Kai has a Great competition weekend – Big & Small!
Tai-Kai had a great competition weekend for both big and small students! In our kids program both six year old Abby Mossotti and five year old Carter Rowley ventured to Lake George to compete in NAGA. Abby won a 2nd place in no-gi (losing to her teammate Carter) and first place in gi. While Carter won first place in both gi and no-gi.
On the MMA front, longtime Tai-Kai student and BJJ blue belt Kyle Parella made his amateur MMA debut in Gladius. Kyle won the match in textbook BJJ / Vale Tudo style. After securing the clich and ensuing takedown, kyle advanced immediately to mount and back after reigning down an onslaught of punches. Upon getting the back Kyle secured a tight RNC for the submission victory! Congrats to Kyle and his family. Everyone at Tai-Kai is very proud of you.
