Devan Green – Brazilian Ju-Jitsu Athlete & Crossfitter
We love to highlight SFCF athletes who are out there competing in sports. SFCFer Devan Green competes in Brazilian Ju-Jitsu (“BJJ”), which is a martial art, combat sport, and a self defense system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique – most notably by applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person.
Last weekend, Devan participated in a tournament in Daly City where he competed in two divisions and took first in both, defeating all of his opponents by submission with the exception of the first match where his opponent quit. Devan will be competing again at Kezar Stadium on September 15th and we will send details as the event gets closer but save the date to come out and watch Devan do his thing! Congratulations Devan!
