Fairtex student Mike Christie has been winning local California and regional California Grappling Tournaments for a few years now. After two prior attempts at Vegas gold in 2003 and 2004 Mike proved 3 times is indeed the charm at Grapplers Quest 05.

Taking 3rd in his weight and in incredible 1st in the overall absolute division, Mike brought home Grapplers Quest Executive/Absolute Gold, going an astounding 6 wins with only 1 loss for the weekend.

Students like Mike Christie who consistently come to practice show a willingness to learn as well as an overall mental fortitude are the core of the Fairtex Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program taught be Jake Shields. If you happen to see Mike around the Academy please take some time out to congratulate him on his big win in Vegas.
