The CBJJ’s Curitiba Open had its latest edition on February 15 and 16, with contests in classical and no-gi BJJ.
In the gi part, the Almeida Jiu-Jitsu team ran away with it. For starters, Bia Basílio led the charge with double gold, beating Silvânia Monteiro (Ataque Duplo) at featherweight and Erika Almeida (Gracie Barra) in the absolute.
Following suit, Leo Lara and Cleber Clandestino (the latter closing ranks with Klaus Meine) secured the top spot in the men’s light feather and middleweight divisions.
In his second appearance since returning from a suspension Erberth Santos claimed another pair of gold medals. Harryson Pereira (Ataque Duplo) was unable to stop him in the super-heavyweight final, and Rider Zuchi (NS Brotherhood) was equally unsuccessful in the absolute final.
Other results included Guilherme Iunes (GB Recreio and GB Bandeirantes) claiming the middleweight title, and Cláudio Caloquinha (GB BH) beating the medium heavyweight field in the gi and bagging double gold in no-gi.
