    🏆🏆🏆 Champion! 
Navarro @in_igne_et_gratia wins 4 matches to conquer the Masters 1 Blue Belt Super Heavy division.  Crazy 88's Mos Def look-a-like won 21-0, armbar, footlock, and 9-0 in the finals.

From the outside, it looks like it was a piece of cake.  What people don't know is how much mental prep Navarro has been doing outside of class.  It's rare to find physically gifted athletes willing to do the mental exercises - they want to just work out hard and push through the competition, hoping for the best.

Navarro approached the problem head on.  He engaged in mental exercises to overcome competitive anxiety that lead him to poor decision-making and over-exertion in previous competitions.  He exemplified one of our coaching principles, "Fix the actual problem." Congrats on the Gold medal (and the Silver in the Open Class). 5-1 for the Day!
