And, just like that, another IBJJF Pan Jiu Jitsu Championship has come and gone. Maybe you competed and tasted the sweetness of victory rivaling only Brazil's beloved açaí berry. Or, maybe you tasted a salty and bitter defeat reminiscent of your most unkempt teammate's seldom washed and often sweat enhanced gi. Either way, you've had some time to think on things and we're sure you're back on the mats today ready to train.
As has become customary, Budovidoes broadcast the tournament in its entirety live all weekend long. They've graciously shared some of the highlight matches with us on their YouTube page. Here's one - the black belt (adult) middleweight final between Clark Gracie and Marcelo "Lapela" Mafra. This and the absolute final (which we'll post today as well) had to be the most talked moments of the tournament - and for good reason. Go.
