Outstanding competition and sportsmanship by all athletes and coaches. We had several challenges to overcome. Our venue on Camp Pendleton was shut down the afternoon before the tournament due to the wildfires. Dan Henderson’s Training center graciously invited us to relocate to their incredible gym but we had to modify the competition to Class C rules due to CSAC restrictions on the sport. Referees scrambled to gather replacement tournament equipment since ours were trapped in the fire zone. Participants and staff all kept a positive spirit and embraced the challenges making it a great time for all
