I wasn't able to get any footage but KK won his division atthe 2012 NAGA New England Grappling Championship. He's been hitting the mats pretty hard for the last 5 months or so and has become a convert to grappling. He's working at his gym assisting Osiris with the kids BJJ class, and doing much better in all aspects of his life.
Sorry about the lack of NAGA footage; here's the most recent footage I have of him (Teen MMA class, kickboxing sparring)

In De Janerio, in blackest night,
Luta Livre flees the fight,
Behold Maeda's sacred tights;
Beware my power... Blue Lantern's light!

Edit: That vid defaults to HD. I know your connection is a little slow, but you can switch it to normal res by clicking on the HD icon.

Just got back from NAPAGA. KK won gold in no-gi IBJJF by armbar, and lost his pankration match. I didn't get the no-gi match on vid, but I have a decent video of the pankration match I'll upload in a bit.

See, keep him focused on this, screw the other BS. Tell him to keep up the good work.

This thread is continuously plagued by my lack of a working video camera, but the NAGA people were shooting video of at least 1 of his matches today, so hopefully they put it up.
I am extremely proud of kk right now; he insisted on being enrolled in the expert division of both the Gi and No Gi competitions, saying that there was no point in being at the world championships if he wasn't going to compete for the belt. He won gold at No Gi Teen Novice last time he competed (he's a 2 stripe white), so he could have gone into Beginner, or Intermediate if he wanted to with no problem. He got in there with the best teens at his weight, fought 3 very competitive matches, never played for points, hunted subs the entire time, and was never taken down or passed (beyond 1/2 guard briefly). He lost all 3 matches, and set aside the medals he won (1 silver, 1 bronze)
The second match he actually might have won when he hit a pretty sweet rolling kneebar, switched it to a straight ankle lock, and had it pretty tight when he forgot the rules and reaped his opponents knee. Teens are usually warned for the 1st infraction of this type, but in the expert division they are held to the same standard as the adults, and so he was DQ'd. He also fought this match without benefit of any coach (I yelled basic common sense stuff from the line which he actually listened to, except when I yelled "don't reap!" and he did anyway)
He showed so much heart, character and scramble today I really wouldn't be any prouder if he pulled off a win or three.
Hopefully pics or vids will be available later on.
Edit: it was a mildly epic case of reverse sandbaging
