This past weekend the Institute of Martial Arts took down a small team to Sin City to compete in the 2014 Vegas Open. In the black belt division, Vitor Pashoal and Milton Bastos fought hard but came up a little short taken home the bronze. Also in the black belt division Quexinho took home second as did Samir Chantre in the absolute division (despite being the smallest guy in the absolute division!). In the black belt Super Heavy division Yuri Simoes took him gold!
Also taking home some hardware were Ryan Lee, Marco Zulauf, and Vinicius Conde! Congrats to every one who competed, worlds is just around the corner!!
