In the first weight class I submitted with an omoplata and in the weight final I submitted Fred Zaganelli, from Gracie Barra, with a choke from the back. In the heavyweight absolute, in the first I beat Claudio Godoi 11-2, in the second I beat Alencar Ferrari, from Gracie ABC, 5-2, and in the final I submitted Eduardo Toledo, from Liga Jiu-Jitsu, with an omoplata”, he said. Bernardo, who approved the event. “It was super cool. The three adult black belt absolutes were worth R$1000 each and the finals were televised on Premiere Combate. I'm very pleased, because it's been two weeks since I returned from the World Cup in the United States, where I came third, having lost to Roger gracie in the semi-final, and I’ve already competed in another championship”, he concluded.

President of WLPJJ, Fernando Lopes, Fepa, points out other positive highlights of the competition.


“Leon Amâncio put on a show among the lighter crowd and Beatriz Mesquita and Michelle Nicolini did well in the women's category. The event was really cool.
