Saturday at Summer Creek High School the Houston Grand Prix Jiu Jitsu tournament served as a hub for some of Houston best grapplers to come together and showcase their skills. Grapplers of all shapes, sizes and skill levels participated, with the number of competitors estimated to be in the 400â€™s. Elbert Hebron always manages to draw a great crowd with his shows and this was no exception.
I’m not sure if it was due to the large number of participants, but the dayâ€™s events did seem to run a bit slow at times, and for those who came early the wait was long. I would also be remiss if I did not mention the delayed arrival of the paramedics for an injured competitor. Â The wait time was much longer than necessary and had the injury been severe it could have been a scary scene.
Save for these few hiccups, Elbert and his crew usually run a tight ship and I am assuming the late location change (beyond his control) had something to do with these few issues. I look forward to the next Houston Grand Prix event in October and I am sure it will be run back to Elbertâ€™s usual standards.
