On Saturday, February 9th, a team of 5 students traveled to Atlanta, GA, to compete at NAGA!  It was a great learning opportunity for everyone.  As a whole, they won 6 gold medals and 1 silver medal!  We definitely have all-stars at Gracie Barra Knoxville.  Trey Powell, who is only 10 years old, took home gold medals in both Gi and no Gi competitions for his weight class!  Congratulations Trey!  19-year-old Joe Watson, a blue belt, took home a gold medal in the adult division.  Other students who competed were Jesse “Squirrel” Calbaugh, J.R. Moles, and Esteban Rodarte.  We are so proud of our hardworking students, and we look forward to many more competitions with our team!
