Congrats to all the Street Sports competitors who took it to that mats for the Mundials and left their gis at home. Thanks to John Lamonica for hooking us up with some great sponsorships and snapping up some great photos that were also used in GracieMag.
Raphael Carrao and Charles Martone both took home a bronze for their efforts.
Adriano Camolese lost an extremely close match at Black Belt by one advantage.
Roberto Zeinum left his mark on some competitors before eventually being bounced out with a loss on points.
Lastly, Mike Ripberger lost a suprising judges decision in a 0-0 match that taught us all a lesson. If you really want to win, tap the guy out! Don't let it go to the judges!
Thanks for the videos by Mike Chun

Mike Chun was already a man not to be messed with when he walked into the doors of Street Sports Jiu Jitsu, not long after he became a feared grappler. And now, a samurai?!?!
Apparently that's the award bestowed upon you if you win your weight class at the NAGA Hawaiin Open as Mike did this past weekend. Way to go, Mike! Leave the sword at home when you come to train though...
Mike Chun and Hugh Fitgerald recently competed at Grappler's Quest in Long Beach on October 10th, 2009 and I'm happy to announce some great results for both of them. Hugh took home first place and Mike took home 3rd. Way to go, guys!
