Brasileiro No-Gi Results

Digitsu Free BJJ Techniques

The biggest no-gi event in Brazil has just passed us on the 25th of October 2015 and as expected it gathered the cream of the crop of the jiu jitsu community, with the male black belt brackets being filled with some of the most promising athletes in our sport as well as seasoned veterans, all ready to battle for the bragging rights of being top no-gi grappler in the country.

Sérgio Moraes‘ black belt Dimitrius Souza was one of the stars of the tournament. Although he had a tough first experience coming into the competition being submitted by Gustavo Saraiva in his first match, Dimitrius bounced back to have a very productive second half of the day, winning the open weight division.

The tournament was honoured with the presence of a few mixed martial arts (MMA) starts, the case of Herbert Burns – undefeated star of ONE Fc, as well as former UFC prospect Ronnys Torres and UFC featherweight title contender Hacran Dias. Out of the MMA specialists, Ronnys Torres was the most successful passing through two very good opponents before an injury to his foot took him out of the final, A final that would have been against Patrick Gaudio. And speaking of him…


Among all the champions crown by the event, two young athletes deserve a little side-note. They are Patrick Gaudio (GFTeam) and Felipe Cesar (Barbosa JJ), both under 25 years of age and both with a wealth of talent.

Patrick has struggled with his knee since receiving his black belt having considered quitting the sport after his last surgery shortly (his second) after the IBJJF 2015 World Championship. The Brazilian NoGi Nationals marked his return to competition, and the young black belt was on point, stacking a few good wins, but none bigger than that against the veteran Claudio Caloquinha.

Felipe César is another competitor that also deserves some extra credit, not just for his gold medal, but for consistently putting on a show for the fans with his submission orientated style of jiu jitsu, one that had earned him earlier this year a #3 placement in the Top BJJ Black Belt Prospects of 2015. On the Brasileiro Sem Quimono Felipinho continued his great form submitting none other than Hacran Dias and Marcelo Mafra (Lapela), two very big feathers in a cap that is clearly running out of places to insert the many feathers collected this year.
