If Jiu-Jitsu’s about consistency, they’re the proof. Yesterday and today, the opening days of the Rio Open, the kids put on a show, and the old faces so familiar to GRACIEMAG.com readers returned to their usual fine performances.
At brown belt, João Gabriel Rocha won two more gold medals, at open and heavyweight. At purple belt – take a guess – light featherweights João and Paulo Miyao won yet again. And Paulo also took the absolute.
In the female contest, purple belt Mackenzie Dern lived up to her billing, winning the openweight and the featherweight division. Check out the complete results at IBJJF.org.
