SUNDAY, 5th OF MAY, 2019 was the date set for the second day of the adult black belt division in the CBJJ (Brazilian Federation of Jiu-Jitsu) Brazilian National Championship, also known as the Brasileiro. The event is one of the top 5 tournaments in the world and gathered a wide number of high-end athletes, who tested their skills against local Brazilan talent.

Signed on to this year’s tournament were names such as the Miyao brothers, Isaac DoederleinNicholas MeregaliKaynan Duarte, Otávio Sousa, Yuta Shimada, Horlando MonteiroHugo MarquesClaudio CalasansVictor HonórioRudson Mateus and many, many more.

From the many outstanding performances, we would start with Isaac Doederlein. The American was outdone by the referees a few days ago at the Abu Dhabi Pro event during his match with Paulo Miyao, but was able to keep his composure and defeat his nemesis at the semi-finals of today’s event. Doederlein was in true form at the Brasileiro, submitting almost all of his opponents, some of which are regarded as the countries finest featherweights. He also cements his name in this sport’s history as one of the very first Americans who conquered this trophy as a black belt, after Rafael Lovato Junior‘s performances in 2007 and 2013.

Another positive note to two black belt newcomers, Eduardo Lopes (ultra-heavyweight), Vinicius Ferreira Gazola (heavyweight) and Ygor Rodrigues (lightweight) who took gold today, three young men with tons of talent. Lopes looked outstanding in his final against Brazilian National Team Judo player Felipe Bezerra, taking the judoka down and submitting him from the top after beating Victor Honório in the semi-final. Vinicius also beat two big international names: Gerard Labinski (Ns Brotherhood) and Kaynan Duarte (Atos) for gold.

On the downside of the Brasileiro were the finals of the open-weight and middleweight divisions, where the ‘anti-game’ tactics Rudson Mateus and Claudio Calasans left the referees with no choice but to disqualify both players. Kudos to the referees who were brave enough to make the call, as many would have caved in to the pressure of removing two iconic figures of the game at a final of a major event. Referees on point in São Paulo on many occasions.

In the female division, Ffion Davies continues to rule the featherweight division with ease, while Bia Mesquita rules the world with another double gold medal. Unstoppable these two!
