Rany Yahrya defeated Parrumphina (by 2-0 in 3rd overtime) in the first round, and then defeated Jeff Glover 4-0 in the first overtime of the final to take the pro division of the first No Gi Tournament held today in Redondo Beach, CA. Many other excellent guys competed. I thought Bill Cooper in the advanced division looked very tough and talented. Dean Lister had many good students competing -- Dean had more than one confrontation with the officials. Many bighshots in attendance, including Nino Elvis Schembri (Ricco didn't show up so Nino got a bye), Rickson, Liborio, Dean Lister, etc. It was a lot of fun.
