Last weekend, Copa Armory Fight Jiu-Jitsu and grappling championship was held at Rodrigo de Freitas Lak. The event – promoted by Marcelo Passos and Marcel Ferreira, a Carlson Gracie black belt – gathered 630 gentle art competitors.
Five hundred competitors competed in the Gi tournament, with team Nova União coming in first, with Alliance in second and BTT in third. Now in the No-Gi division, BTT came out on top, followed by RFT. Across the two tournaments, Nova União came out on top in the overall score.
“One of the best parts was the great matches between the luta livre and Jiu-Jitsu representatives, and everybody getting on great,” remarked Marcel.
