A big round of applause for our GB Chicagoland Kids and Teens Competition Team! Their incredible display of skill at the IBJJF PanAm Kids this weekend has filled us with pride and earned us a couple of silver medals. Their dedication and teamwork truly embodied the spirit of the Red Shield.

We’re immensely grateful for their commitment to representing our team. Each victory they’ve earned is a testament to their resilience and passion. Keep this momentum going, champions! The future looks bright with you in it.

Big thanks to Prof. Carlos Lemos Jr. and all of our GB Kids coaches for their unwavering guidance and support and to our GB parents for entrusting us with their children’s development. On to the next one! 🥋🏆🔺️
