This past weekend we had some cool stuff going down in Severna Park Maryland. Brenden “Spike Scream-o” Bill takes the gold at the Copa Nova tournament and the sweet new sweatshirts are in!
First lets talk about Spike. We sent him to a small tournament in North Virgina called the Copa Nova. The Copa is a good local level tournament and only the second of the season for Spike. Spike was looking for a turnaround in performance following his showing at the Naga Maryland. To the joy of his parents, Spike looked like a kid on a mission as he breezed to first in Gi and second in Nogi. In nogi spike lost in the finals to a tough young man from Virginia. He was able to recharge and come back to beat the same child in the finals of gi to capture the gold. We were very happy with Spike and this is looking like a good season of grappling for him. Next up will be the Naga NJ on the 18th of November. We’ll be taking Spike, Holden Murphy and Alexia Lara to that one, get it done kids!
Also in the Annapolis news is the super high level Muay Thai kickboxing and MMA striking seminar. The seminar will be held at Ivey League MMA, located in Severna Park, Maryland (1 town up from Annapolis).

Oh and one last thing I know this news won’t top what Spike did or the seminar but it’s still pretty cool. We got all new sweatshirts in! These sweatshirts are AWESOME! We sold a bunch of them on the first day so if you want one you need to get in on this. They’re grey with a black Ivy League MMA logo on the front and the Team Lloyd Irvin bulldog on the back, super sick looking! If you need to pay by credit card and would like the sweatshirt shipped to you then email Miss Teresa at firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise come see Chrissy at the front desk to buy one.
