MPR JUNIOR STANDOUT ATHLETE RAHEEM RAHAMATULLA

Congrats to Raheem Rahamatulla representing MPR this weekend in Baltimore racking up more wins, experience and hardware. Raheem began as one of our first Junior Athletes.  He began learning JiuJitsu less than a year ago and since then has competed in and won nearly all of the major competitions from PA, NJ and Baltimore.  He is a mentor and leader in our programs and often trains with the adults.  This kid is fearless and relentless.  Among his accomplishments in BJJ more importantly he is a standout in the classroom as well.  As a 10th grader at Neshaminy High School he excels at everything he sets his mind to.  This year he has his sites set on High School wrestling.  We all know he will have a great first year!  Proud of the way this kid competes! 

MPR MAKING WAVES AT NAGA IN PHILLY

Since our official opening back on December 1st 2011 Team MPR has quietly began competing in local Jiu Jitsu tournaments.  In October 2012 at NAGA in Philadelphia just or 3rd tournament MPR had 2 breakout days of competition.  On Saturday the adults fought hard earning us numerous first, second and third place victories ranging from the Expert to Novice Divisions.  On Sunday it was time for the Juniors to continue battling for rank.  Our young guns stunned many of the favorites and continued gathering wins.  We closed out the tournament  with nearly all of our team ranking in the top three.  Very proud of our guys and girls that left it on the mats!
