Last week marked the 20th Pan-American Championship: the largest jiu jitsu competition in North America. Hundreds of athletes coalesced in Irvine, California, to test their skills against grapplers from across the world. Our very own Luke Pollard was Kaijin’s sole representative. Out of 17 competitors, he progressed through the ranks of his division to defeat all but one opponent. When the time came for fighters to find their places on the podium, Luke claimed the silver medal. We all want to wish Luke a warm congratulations on his stellar performance. G'job!
