Team Lakay scores anew in Pan Asian Jiu Jitsu tilt

Team Lakay left another mark in the mats after grabbing 11 medals during the recent Pan Asian Jiu Jitsu International Open Competition that includes seven golds and four bronze medals winning the over-all title in the no gi division.

Leading the charge for Team Lakay was Carlos Alvarez, whose outstanding performance earned him two gold medals in the adult (blue) 79.5 kilogram and adult (blue) open weight categories. Alvarez, known for his relentless training and tactical acumen, dominated his categories with a combination of technical precision and raw power.

Also wining a gold and a bronze each are Jhanlo Sangiao who topped the adult (purple) -73.5kg and a podium finish in the adult (purple) open weight while Jaybee Ban-eg snagged the top honors in the adult (purple) -79.5 kilogram and third in the adult (purple) open weight division.

Adonis Sevilleno also won a gold in the adult (blue) 73.5kg division and a bronze in the adult (blue) open weight division while Jeanclaude Saclag topped the adult (blue) 67.5 kg and a bronze in the adult (blue) open weight class.

Joris Jonker capped Team Lakay’s stellar performance with a gold in the adult (blue) 85.5kg division.


Coach Mark Sangiao, with the support of the team manager Congressman Eric Yap owed Team Lakay’s success at the Pan Asian Jiu Jitsu International Open Competition with its recent affiliation with the Lotus Club Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, the first and only fight club in the country. With the affiliation, Team Lakay is able to communicate and learn from practitioners all over the world.

The medal hauls are also testament of their rigorous training regimen and the unyielding spirit of its members as the team has continually pushed the boundaries of their capabilities, embracing both victory and defeat as stepping stones to greater achievements.

It also exemplifies the team’s adaptability and excellence not only in mixed martial arts but also in jiu-jitsu.

The recent wins can also serve as an inspiration to aspiring martial artists and a reminder of the heights that can be reached with hard work, dedication, and the right mentorship.
