Cusi Family Competition Team

The other week I had the idea of finally compiling the family’s competition records. To be honest, a lot of these titles mean little. The medals, also little. If you asked me where any of these medals are, I would tell you that I can probably find less than 25% at this moment. These wins and losses also don’t tell you how many opponents were in each division (sometimes default wins can be good or bad), it also doesn’t tell you how many poor ref decisions were made, etc. What I’m hoping this list does tell you: my kids and I love competing. I admire my children because they are natural competitors. They enjoy being able to test their skills on the mat, and the medal is just a bonus. We’ve made a lot of great friends from different teams because of competition. The honest truth this year (2018): I didn’t have a chance to sign them up for IBJJF Pan Kids because of how much it was to sign all 3 up. I very well could have signed up just one, but I didn’t feel that would be fair to all of them. By the time I thought I had a chance to register, they closed due to max capacity. In the past, it was because of many supporters, sponsors and tournament organizers’ generosity that the kids and I were able to compete so much. So long story short, my hope is to do a few more tournaments this year alongside my munchkins. I’m willing to work hard to be able to get back into tournament shape and to save money in order to register. That being said, if anyone is interested in private lessons (Fitness, Jiu Jitsu, Self-Defense), need someone crafty to help you with projects or *insert Raquel’s Jill of all Trades, Master of None skills* assistance, please contact me! Also looking to get back into blogging as well to connect with some brands who might want to sponsor the family. For those who have supported, encouraged us, I am forever grateful to you and will continue to pay it forward as much as I can!
