GTA to Sponsor the Påtgon Jiu- Jitsu Tournament for Kids

(Tamuning, Guam) Tuesday, April 4, 2023- GTA proudly announces its sponsorship of the upcoming Påtgon Jiu- Jitsu Tournament- Guam's first kids-only (Gi and No-Gi) Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Tournament scheduled for Saturday, April 22, 2023, at the UOG Calvo Fieldhouse in Mangilao. The event gives future generations more opportunities to gain experience and put Guam on the map.

Jayronne Gandaoli, Event Coordinator of Pacific Grappling Events and Black Belt Jiu-jitsu Practitioner, says, "Being a product of Guam’s Youth Jiu-Jitsu starting at 11 years old with the privilege to travel for competition, and now a mother of 3 children are the reasons that drove me to start this organization. To give back to our community, I wanted to bring that same experience without having our Jiu Jitsu practitioners pay thousands of dollars. Thank you GTA for supporting the Spring 2023 Påtgon Jiu Jitsu Tournament."

The tournament is an excellent opportunity for young athletes to showcase their skills and compete against their peers. It is open to young competitors of all skill levels, providing a platform for beginners to gain experience and seasoned competitors to test their abilities.

As a company committed to promoting sports and fitness in the local community, GTA recognizes the importance of supporting events like the Påtgon Jiu- Jitsu Tournament. The local company is thrilled to be able to contribute to the growth and development of the next generation of Jiu-jitsu practitioners.

"We are proud to support this tournament and the young athletes participating," said Michele Catahay Perez, Sr. Community Relations Manager for GTA. "We believe that sports play an important role in promoting health and wellness, and we are committed to supporting events that promote physical fitness and healthy lifestyles in our community."
