“This is one of the 4 Grand Slams Events of the year. It’s impressive how much it has grown.I remember when I first came in 2006, IBJJF still receive registration the day before the event at weight ins.Yes. Weight ins are the day before the event. And all the matches were done in a day. This year, we have an impressive 9-day event. 10 mats areas. Packed.
I’m happy to my performance, Quarterfinals and semifinals against very tough guys by a decent amount of points, Broken finger on the semifinals and leg lock submission on the final.
Gratitude to Sensei Xande Ribeiro for guidance, advice, encouragement and adjustments during the mats. Honored to represent our team”
