Plant City-area schools sent their grapplers to Grappling Industries Tampa on Dec. 9 and performed well.

Carlson Gracie Plant City and Senshi Do Kai/Ares BJJ Plant City brought a total of 13 competitors to the event, held in Strawberry Crest High School’s gymnasium, and won 19 medals.

Senshi Do Kai’s group was the biggest, consisting of 10 youth and one adult. Only one member of the group did not medal, but instructor Q. Wiggins said they all fought hard.

“My kids always impress me,” Wiggins said.

Carlson Gracie sent two, Nathan Pires de Camargo and Logan Ramirez, to the tournament and won three medals.

“Those guys are animals,” instructor Sam Kimmel said. “I expected nothing less.”
