Buffalo Classic 2017 Recap and Exciting News!
Hello everyone out there in Internet World!
The start of the Summer is rolling in and some big things are happening at BUZZ.
First things first, we had our best sale ever at the Buffalo Classic at the end of May! It was so awesome seeing everyone, as well as getting a chance to talk to all the people who have had Jiu Jitsu change their lives.
We heard 3 really awesome stories from BUZZARDS that we liked so much that we had to share to the world.
The first is a young girl, Maddie, who is quickly making a name for herself in the New York area, winning her third super fight. Maddie, the daughter of Jay (a BJJ Black Belt), and reps Fight Family and BUZZ in all of her wins so far! We hope she will continue competing and taking home golds!
Our second was getting to talk to Patchy Mix, a pro MMA fighter, sponsored by Fight Family, and who recently improved his record to 4-0 professionally. He also took Gold at the Classic. We follow Patchy's career pretty close, and can't wait to see what he dominates at next!
The last Spotlight goes out to Mark Devito. Mark was in the middle of a competitive match, when an inadvertent elbow broke his nose. Rather than give up and let the match end, Mark fought on, coming up short in the match, loosing some blood, but winning our approval and a Bronze medal. We love seeing our gear be worn by warriors like this.
NEW SHIRTS! (Pictures soon)
The first is a half length sleeve red flower of life shirt, with the same pattern as the Heat and Ocean, except in a new color. We made a half length sleeve for a lot of reasons. The biggest being, its hot in the summer, but nobody likes stuff touching their triceps. We compromised (and followed Cam Newton's lead) and made the first half length BUZZ rash guard, with sleeves that will end just above the elbow. Let us know what you think about half length sleeves!
The second is a long sleeve, the BUZZ Monster. This is an interesting project, because for the first time ever, we worked with an illustrator for this design. We brought in Gabe Levitt, an illustrator who has a very unique, tattoo-style. This shirt will be our first illustrative design, and we are very excited to see how it'll turn out. Think chaos... and octopi...
For the first time ever, we will be appearing at the Summit Lacrosse Tournament, on July 31st to August 2nd in Lake Placid, NY. This is the largest Lacrosse tournament in the world, seeing thousands of players each day. We are very excited to see the interest from the lacrosse world in BUZZ!
