Wow it seems like the tournament calendar for high end BJJ never stops. The European Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Championship starts in less than two weeks.
Last year’s winners in the absolute division for the black belts not surprisingly listed some of the world’s best talent.
- Braulio Estima (Gracie Barra)
- Alexandre “Xande” Ribeiro (Saulo Ribeiro)
- Rafael Lovato Jr (Saulo Ribeiro) & Lucio Rodrigues (Gracie Barra)
The black belt division can sleep a bit more soundly knowing that neither Xande nor Lovato Jr. will be attending the tournament.
For those lucky enough to be hanging out in Portugal towards the end of the month and would like information on attending or competing in the event, details can be found at the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation.
