Sam is a guest at the BJJ Hostel who got to experience a really interesting night at the University of Jiu Jitsu where he got to participate in a mock competition fight with Saulo and Xande Ribeiro judging the match! Check out this video highlight of Sam’s match during the event:
Thanks to Sam who came all the way from London to share his positive energy with us here at the hostel! Sam trains under the Carlson Gracie lineage and came to compete at the IBJJF Pan American championships as a brown belt this year. He stopped by the hostel before and after the tournament to enjoy his time training with Clark Gracie and at the University of Jiu Jitsu as well as spend a lot of time on the beach! Although he ended up just one victory away from the podium, we’re sure he’ll come back strong for a good showing at the World Championships in May!
Here’s a few photos of Sam from his exploration of the beaches in San Diego!
