On Saturday, March 14, 2015, Professor Damon’s American Killer Bees Jiu Jitsu (AKBJJ) Travel Team put their hard work, skills and athleticism to the test in their first North American Grappling Association (NAGA) Championships competition. Under the leadership and guidance of Sheldon Cole, who learned the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under Professor Jordan Damon, the AKBJJ Travel Team made their way to the NAGA Albany Championships.
The team of five were coached by Sheldon Cole and received medals. Robert Wagner received a gold medal in No-Gi Grappling and a silver medal in Gi Grappling. Collin Chase received a silver medal in No-Gi grappling, Ryan King received a silver medal in No-Gi Grappling and Stacy Stauffer received a gold medal in both No-Gi and Gi Grappling. Coach Sheldon Cole also competed and won a championship belt for Gi-Grappling.
Congratulations to the AKBJJ Travel Team and all their accomplishments at the NAGA Albany Championships.
The AKBJJ team would like to thank their sponsors for making this trip possible.
