JULY 4, 2024, This past weekend we had the pleasure of witnessing one of the biggest no-gi events on the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation (IBJJF) schedule, the Brazilian No-Gi Nationals, an event that spanned across two days and gathered many of the sport’s top grappling talent, particularly from the region of Brazil and South America in general. This included athletes like Patrick Gaudio, Alexandre Jesus, Julia Boscher, Rafael Paganini, Jessica Caroline, to name a few who mixed in with the hottest prospects on the continent, like Artur Lanes, Gabriel Brod, Giovanna Carneiro, etc.

Despite the many solid matches observed, the talk of the tournament was the 3 foreigners who managed to secure gold medals in one of the biggest Brazilian tournaments of the year. An event seldom won by outside talent. Those 3 brave athletes were Chris Tran of Crazy 88 (Maryland, US), Julian Espinosa (Costa Rica), and Yigit Hanay the first-ever Turkish grappler to win the Brasileiro Sem Quimono in the adult black belt division.

Chris competed in the roosterweight division, the smallest in the adult male black belt category, taking his match via 2 points. Espinosa went through 3 opponents in the featherweight division, making it look fairly easy with 2 submissions and a win over Richard Bukovcsan with an 8-point margin.

The most impressive of the 3 disruptors was Turkey’s Yigit Hanay. In a tough lightweight division, Hanay beat 2 of the favorites, taking out Gabriel Neves in the first round via RNC, and Luis Felipe Ribas via 9×0, ending the tournament with 4 victories and 2 submissions. Even more impressive is the fact that this was Yigit’s IBJJF debut as a black belt.

Also on the rise is Giovanna Carneiro. Currently representing Fratres, Carneiro had been promoted to black belt only 2 days before the tournament, but she took the assignment very seriously, proving how well-prepared she was for the moment. 3 matches, 3 submissions, and a gold medal.
