SEPTEMBER 13, 2020, MOSKOW, RUSSIA was jiu-jitsu’s capital for a weekend as the famous Eastern European city became the host of the famous AJP Grand Slam Tour, a tournament that gathered some of the top athletes in the sport. Among the competitors were quite a few Brazilian grapplers, competitors who’ve been somewhat held hostage to the current travel restrictions still in place due to the COVID19 pandemic that prevent them from competing in the US.

BRAZIL’S NEW GENERATION SHOWS ITS POTENTIAL

With an unusual mix of Eastern European grapplers and the cream of the crop of Brazil’s jiu-jitsu, the results swayed towards the more broadly respected/experienced South American contingent, particularly through its younger competitors, names such as Diogo Reis, Jonas Andrade, Yuri Hendrex, Luiz Paulo, Roosevelt Sousa, and a few more dominated their respective divisions despite the presence of their higher-ranking, more veteran countrymen.

DAGESTANI BLACK BELT UPSETS THE ESTABLISHMENT

One of the most pleasant surprises of the adult black belt division was Arsen Shapiev. Granted, we did not know much about Shapiev to begin with. Judging by his social media, Arsen is not only a very tough BJJ black belt, but he is also a successful politician in his home country.

Competing in the 94 kilograms division, Shapiev didn’t appear on many people’s radar as the favorite to win the tournament, that status was fully on the shoulders of the highly-rated Catriel Oliveira who was making his black belt debut but had been a true force as a brown belt, particularly on the AJP Lague with wins over Jansen Gomes, Sebastian Rodriguez, Pedro Machado, to name  few.

Both Oliveira and Shapiev had strong showings on their run towards the final, beating 2 very solid opponents each. In the final, when most were expecting a tough battle between the Brazilian and the Dagestani, Mr. Arsen made it look easy, conquering a quick submission via kneebar in the early seconds of the match. Check out the full results of the adult black belt division.
