CARBULLIDO WINS NATIONALS

[sixcol_five_last]

By Patrick Lujan

Mike Carbullido continues to conquer the jiu-jitsu world and he’s taking the Guam seal along for the ride.

Carbullido reached another milestone for Guam, taking two gold medals in the heavyweight and absolute purple belt title of the American National Jiu-Jitsu Championship Saturday (California time) in Carson, CA.

Only 20-years-old, Carbullido beat Jaysen Baxter from Brazilian Top Team for the gold in the heavyweight title match and Atos teammate Michael Liera Jr. (lightweight champ) in the absolute title bout.

Chamorro John Meno took bronze in the lightweight purple belt division.
