Staking their claim to the $3000 cash prize for the black belt absolute division at the 8th Arizona International Open on March 9 and 10 are Bastos brothers, Bruno and Ricardo.
Last weekend in San Antonio, Texas, the brothers were able to close out both the Brown/Black belt over 202 pounds and the heavy absolute divisions at the Abu Dhabi Trials. Not wanting to lose their winning momentum, the two are ready to try for a repeat performance in Phoenix, Ariz. in preparation for the Pan Jiu-Jitsu Championship two weeks later in Irvine, Calif.

Starting on June 23rd, 2012, at the 2012 AZ State Championship, in order to receive free entry as a coach at all AZSBJJF/GDJJ Events, your school must be affiliated with AZSBJJF, local schools who are not consistently supporting the events with at least five competitors, will be removed from the school directory. Out of State schools must contact Gustavo@azsbjjf.com for coaches passes It’s mandatory for ALL competitors to include the name of their coach when registering for the tournament.
GD Jiu-Jitsu events will be offering free admission ($70 value) to the Introduction to M.S.T. (Mental Skills Training) Seminar: A Guide to Maximizing Your Potential and Success, to the winners of the ADULT Open Class divisions at the 4th Southwest BJJ Classic.
Are you having a hard time transferring all your hard work in training practices to the competition mat?
Are you feeling so anxious about performing because you don’t want to disappoint your coach, family, and friends to the point that you can’t think clearly and perform to the best of your ability?
Are you trying to perform perfectly in competition? Do you beat yourself up after mistakes and dwell on errors?
If you answered, “Yes,” to any of these questions, Mental Skills Training (M.S.T.) may be the key to unlocking your true potential as an athlete and as a successful person.
