 Congrats Pan Am winners!

 

 
Congrats to Gunnar Nelson (AKA: Gunni) for his gold medal win at the Pan Am championships. Five wins in a row, with multiple submissions, Gunni represents the talent of the second generation SBG athletes.


It's always been a bit humorous when some critics mention that although SBGi has had some high level MMA athletes, we have yet to produce any BJJ world champions. Its easy to forget that the Brazilians and their BJJ team have been doing this for multiple generations. SBGi is less the 15 Years old, and athletes like Gunni represent the first generation of brown belts who have trained using the SBGi methods. Their talent speaks for itself, and you aint seen nothing yet!


Also big congrats to SBG's original BJJ coach Chris Haueter on winning gold in his division. Way to go Chris!

Look for SBGi to be fielding a large team at the upcoming World Championships this summer. And look for Gunni to take home another gold, along with many other SBGr's.
