The long and short of it - the team did well!
On the 17th of March, a team of 10 Team Highlight Reel people, the Professor included, made their way to Petaling Jaya, Malaysia to prepare for Copa da Malásia V, a weekend of BJJ competitions in gi and nogi on the 18th-19th of March 2017. The competition was held at Jaya Shopping Centre level 1 atrium over 2 mats, which, we'd like to point out, were very good quality. They were even blue and yellow, reminiscent of the IBJJF competition mats!

Our team competed on both days, day 1 being gi and day 2 being nogi. We are proud of our students' performance and achievements -- we got us some bling! And we're now back to training at home base after gaining quality experience at Copa.
We came in as a team, and the experience - the competition training, planning and coordinating flights, pranking the not-masters-division members, competition nerves, giving each other post-competition massages, stuffing ourselves with food - all of it, from the preparation leading to Copa until the post-competition reviews and training have brought as closer as a Team. Team Highlight Reel as a whole gained new understanding of the sport, of ourselves, and of each other.
