Justin Mosher at New England NAGA

Team Simmler Student Justin Mosher competed and took the 1st place title home in the Intermediate no-gi Cruiserweight 199lbs division at the New England Grappler NAGA event held a Twin Rivers Casino on February 6th 2010.

Justin was scheduled to compete in the gi division as well but was suffering from a slight case of strep throat and was not able to. Even with feeling under the weather Justin early felt it was his day to shine. He approached his trainer/coach Dan Simmler right before his first match and said, " I know for a fact I'm going to take this division". Here is video of his first match. Justin is wearing the black top.

Justin's second match lasted just under three minutes and he was victorious via a submission. Here's the video;

For his third and final match on the day after deciding he didn't feel well enough to compete in the gi competion. Justin was weary as it was the finals and he could didn't see any of the Team Simmler coaches. Just recalls the moments before the finals match, "They call me up for finals match and I look around and cant find any of the guys who had been coaching me through my division. So I get a little nervous and think to myself I guess I'm just going to have to make this match quick. Which I did my finals match happened to be the shortest match of the day. But in the very beginning of the match Jay Hammel runs right over to coach me." With Jay there to coach Justin went to work this match ended in just under a minute via submission.

Here's the video

With this NAGA victory Justin adds another title/medal to his resume and hopes to do the same later this year at the Pan-American Games. Congratulations Justin we're all proud of your efforts and achievement at NAGA.
