Future MMA stars Giovani and Carlos Ruffo are making a splash in the Kids Amateur Wrestling World.
The boys recently competed at the “Cliff Keen Worlds” in Reno, NV. Its a 3-day wrestling tournament that attracts the top kid wrestlers in the country, including a lot of State Champs. Kids from 43 States made their way to Reno for the tournament. There were 3200 kids competing in the 10 and under bracket.
Carlos placed 3rd at 46lbs and Giovani placed 6th out of 25 kids at 37lbs. Very impressive for the duo. This is their first year competing in Wrestling Tournaments. Their mom says they caught the Wrestling bug, love it and plan to compete in Wrestling and Jiu Jitsu every year going forward. They’ve been training with Anthony Archuelta at Sharp Shooter’s Wrestling Club in Victorville when they aren’t here at the Vegas gym.
Next up for the boys will be Grappler’s Quest in May.
While at the Cliff Keen tournament, the boys got the chance to hit the mats with Wrestling Legend Danny Hodge.
