Andy is one of our athletes that probably has the best attitude when it comes to competition. He never gets mad when he loses.... in fact he seems the same if he wins or loses. Andy is a competing machine. The guy competes in every local tournament and even travels to the Pan Ams and the Worlds. We couldn't ask for a better guy to represent the gym!!
Here are some of Andy's accomplishments (so far):
2008 Oregon Open Purple Belt Middleweight Division 1st Place Champion
2008 Oregon Open Purple Belt Absolute Division 1st Place Champion
2008 Sub League Championship Advanced 150-169lb 2nd Place Champion
2008 Sub League Qualifier #2 150-169lb 1st Place Champion
2007 The Revolution Purple Belt Middleweight Division 1st Place Champion
2007 Western Regional Purple Belt Middleweight 3rd Place Champion
2007 Western Regional Purple Belt Absolute 2nd Place Champion
I wanted to post this video because we were at a tournament last week in Seattle Washington and the coach of Andy's opponent yelled that Andy couldn't do a triangle choke because his legs are to stubby.... LOL. Here is proof "coach who yells ridiculous things from the side lines" that stubby legs can in fact do a triangle choke.
