2010 Arizona State BJJ Championships!

The 2010 Arizona State Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Championships had just passed and another one is in the books! It was a long 2 days for many of the competitors and coaches. There were many good matches, a phenomenal display of technical Jiu-Jitsu, and a showing of famous participants such as WEC Champion Benson Henderson and and UFC Veteran Hermes Franca. After 2 days of blood, sweat, and tears, Ruffhouse Jiu-Jitsu comes out on top! Ruffhouse places in the top 5! Ruffhouse places 4th beating out teams Such as Team Megaton, BJJ Revolution Team Tucson, Relson Gracie Team! Ruffhouse worked hard this year and we will work harder to win the whole thing next year!
