This video is Carlos’ first tournament at the 1998 New York Grappling Challenge, where he earned his first championship title.
In this video, Carlos is a white belt competing against a purple belt.

A couple weeks before this competition, my 10-year-old son Jordan saw Sebastian puke after class.
There’s nothing overly unusual about vomiting from extreme exertion, although it’s not a goal… just a sign.
But the effort paid off.
Now, he’s walking away from the last NAGA DC competition with a gold and silver medal, along with Darnell and his silver.
It’s good to see how both of their efforts translate into solid performances under the coaching of the Bowie MMA instructors.
