December 17th, 2019 by Buddy Chambers
This past weekend the Checkmat team traveled to Anaheim, CA to compete at the 2019 World IBJJF NoGi Championships and gave an amazing performances bringing home 3 medals(1x gold, 2x silver). Starting with brown-belt Kody Steele, Kody was in a completely stacked division but still fought his way to the finals defeating 4 of the best brown-belts in the world. Kody lost in the finals(5th match) by just a single advantage thus naming him the 2019 NoGi world silver medalist, congratulations and amazing work! Next up is blue-belt Tiffany Butler, and despite coming off an injury that kept her out of training for a few months Tiffany was still able to secure the Gold medal for her division by submitting all her opponents. Then Tiffany went on to compete in the NoGi Absolute Division where she was able to secure the Silver medal. Tiffany is also this year’s 2019 Gi World Champion making her a 2x world champion. Great job and congratulations. Thanks to the team, friends, family and sponsors that support our athletes and our community. “Together We Are Stronger”.
