Team Titan tears through competition

Team Titan recently tore it up at a tournament hosted by the North American Grappling Association on July 10 in Atlanta.

Out of the 11 competitors that competed in the tournament, seven of them placed in the Top 3.

Craig Helton, owner of Titan Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu that will reopen its new location on 110 W. Ridgeley St. soon, said that things have come along way for Team Titan.

“When we started out, we just had a handful of guys,” Helton said. “Now, we have guys competing at higher levels in large cities with great competition, and we are winning against them. It shows me that we are doing something right.”

At the tournament, Justin Ramer of Perdido and Tanner Kirk picked up first-place finishes in their respective divisions.

Bobby Ledkins of Perdido, Nick Flowers of Atmore and Helton of Atmore all finished second at the tournament.

T.J. Nisewonger of Flomaton and Brian Ledkins of Perdido each took home third-place finishes.

Other Team Titan competitors at the event included Derek Vickery, Brandon Vickery, Cody Helton and Blake Kirk.

The next competition for Team Titan will be next month in Brewton
