Division winners include blue belt Louis Grea, white belt Dimitri Burrel, orange belt Max Rosa 9 year old who fought opponents much heavier and up to two years older. Teen assistant coach Nakysha Jedreon also went undefeated after a very challenging match with St Barth’s Brazilian phenom Lorena Freires. Brown belt coach Jami Eloi lost a close final match (Gi and No-Gi) to an opponent over 50lbs heavier, demonstrating incredible heart and will. Black belt professor Melissa Bardfield’s brown belt female opponent was injured and much to the disappointment of the students was not able to have a match.
