Congratulations to the Yamasaki Academy competitors who competed this past weekend at the IBJJF 2018 Pans Championships in Los Angeles, CA. Our own Kristin Plichta did not get the results she was hoping for but got onto the podium for a 3rd place finish. Fernando Yamasaki himself competed for the first time in 14 years and also came home with a bronze medal. Yamasaki Academy’s only female BJJ Black Belt Kristin Allen got gold in her division. Congratulations to all!
