Silver at Abu Dhabi World Pro Jiu-Jitsu Championship
Congratulations to Simon Chandra on his silver medal at the Abu Dhabi World Professional Jiu-Jitsu Championship.
Simon performed really well and was beaten in the final in a really close match.
He worked really hard and had his first real weight cut leading into the event. Speaking with Simon he said he felt really good on comp day and that his grips felt strong. This is really good to hear as for us the biggest part of his preparation is making weight and feeling strong. If we mess this up and he doesn't make weight then he doesn't get to compete for a world championship and wastes his time and money travelling overseas. Even if he makes weight but we didn't plan it properly it could severely hamper his performance in the competition. Fortunately all our planning went according to plan and gave Simon the best chance of winning his second world title.
I know he will be back again next year hungry to win another world title.
