The first session of our GB Chicagoland Competition Training took place on June 12 at GB Downers Grove to kick off our 2021 GB Ambassadors Program of Illinois fundraising campaign.
The event was packed with members from different GB academies in the Chicagoland area and beyond who showed up in droves to participate in 2 hours of fast-paced, high-intensity simulated competition drills, strategic analysis, set sparring, and strength and conditioning exercises.
The session was facilitated by some of the most decorated GB Black Belts in the Midwest including Professor Carlos Lemos Jr., Andre Oliveira, Pedroca Tello, Marcos Barros, Cristiano Ribeiro, Evandro Campelo Jr., Josh Cadenbach, and more.
We would like to thank all of you who made this event a huge success. Special thanks to Denise Andrews for her work with the GB Ambassadors Program of Illinois and for the beautiful pictures.
