This past weekend the BFF Checkmat Team went to compete at the IBJFF 2019 World Championship in Long Beach, Ca and performed very well coming back with 1 Gold medal, 2 Silver medals and a Bronze medal. Tiffany Butler came out victorious and won the gold medal in the Juvenile blue-belt absolute division, winning her first 2 matches via submission. Tiffany then went on to secure the silver medal in the lightweight division making that a total of two medals, 1 gold, and 1 silver. Congratulations, and amazing job!!! Andrew Tackett also won 2 medals, silver and bronze. He won both his first two fights(one via submission), just barely losing in the finals by 2 points to win the silver medal. Then in the absolute division Andrew won his first fight via an armbar, but unfortunately lost in the semi-finals by just 2 points to get the bronze medal, great work and congratulations.
