The International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation’s 2016 World Championships present an opportunity to a sophomore from high school, a sophomore from college and a veteran Brazilian Jiu Jitsu instructor, who all work and train in Starkville.
Peyton Poole is the high school sophomore, Abraham Mahdi is a Mississippi State sophomore and Jae McIntosh is the instructor.
It will be the third time for McIntosh to compete at the World Championships, while Poole and Mahdi will be making their first appearance. The event takes place in Long Beach, California, next week.
“It’s an incredible opportunity with 3,500 to 4,000 competitors and roughly 70 guys per division so it’s exciting,” McIntosh said.
