Alliance’s Rubens Charles (aka Cobrinha) disputes the two points given to his opponent Otavio Souza, of Gracie Barra at the 2009 Pan-Ams.
The 2009 BJJ Pan-Ams are in full swing! Yesterday in Los Angeles marked the second day of the three-day event, which featured incredible competitors and record numbers of participants.
Yesterday I live blogged the black belt divisions (and a touch of the brown belt divisions), which captivated the large audience from one end of the room to the other. I also managed to sit down with several important voices in Brazilian jiu-jitsu to help recap the action for you. In today’s episode of The FightWorks Podcast you will hear from:
- Pan-Ams event organizer Mike Buckels, of the IBJJF
- Kid Peligro, the author of The Gracie Way and longtime BJJ journalist
- Luca Atalla, the editor in chief of GracieMag.
- Carlos Gracie Jr., the head of the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation
- Alicia Anthony, the sport’s busiest photographer whose work is found at aliciaphotos.com
