Capturing Jiu Jitsu In The Mountains: Tournament of Champions 25, Pt. 1.

It's been a few months since I have been photographing jiu jitsu and what better return than in my new home of Denver, CO. Between injuries and a couple of relocations from Austin, I was beyond stoked to finally begin settling into things. One thing I have surely been missing is jiu jitsu! F2W was in town hosting the Colorado Tournament of Champions 25, so it was a no-brainer to grab my camera and hit the mats. The day was full of new faces as well as some familiar ones from the gyms I've been rolling at here. From the dominating young girls beating all the boys, to the up and coming adult fighters looking to make a name for themselves, the day was filled with some pretty amazing jiu jitsu and I was able to capture some amazing action. I saw more submissions than I did decisions which always makes fights more exciting. All in all it was a fantastic afternoon and I was incredibly grateful to be back doing what I love. I'm stoked to see where these next few months take me and I'm looking forward to sharing it with yo all.

Stay Creative,

Flying armbar!

Today we choose violence.

Saw a few of these the entire day.
