An amazing event to jump-start this year’s IBJJF calendar. Counting over 3400 athletes in the brackets, the 2015 edition of the Jiu Jitsu European Open Championship brought an avalanche of spectators to the Casal Vistoso (Lisbon) venue making it look jam packed.

There was a lot of momentum going for a few black belt newcomers who seemed willing to take on the veterans at one of jiu jitsu’s most prized tournaments, but as the adult divisions started shaping up, the 3 fighters who truly stood out were Andre Galvao (Atos), Igor Silva (GFT) and Tarcisio Jardim (Checkmat), all 3 seasoned competitors.

If Andre Galvao was already regarded as the favorite to win the competition in his weight division and the absolute, a few doubted the drive of Silva and Jardim. Boy were they wrong! The GFTeam and Checkmat power houses put on an incredible display of attacking jiu jitsu, always seeking the submission, showing why the big boys are more fun to watch in this sport.

In the women’s adult division, the spectators favorite was certainly MacKenzie Dern. The omoplata wizard put on a show in every fight, and although she took home “only” two silver medals, she has all the reason to be proud of her efforts. Against Michele Nicolini at her weight category final Dern fought a fast paced fight losing due to a questionable guard pass, which may (or may not) have been secured for less than the required 3 seconds. In the final of the absolute Dern fought the inevitable Gabi Garcia who looked gigantic in comparison, almost twice the size. Again Dern fought her heart out, almost choking Garcia with a back choke, lifting the crowd. Garcia eventually escaped the attack and placed an attack of her own, submitting Dern.
