This past weekend was a good one for the LEaO OPTiCS Jiu jItsu Team.  We had 4 competitors putting their skills on the line in different events..

2x BlackBelt World Champ Samir Chantre competed in the Abu Dhabi Grand Slam is Los Angles taking the silver after losing by points to the always dangerous Paulo Miyao.  But the silver lining to the defeat is Samir got to share the podium with Osvaldo Augusto Moizinho repressing Samir Chantre BJJ as well..  OSS
