This past weekend, on September 15, 2023, the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation (IBJJF) organized one of its largest events in South America, the Campeonato Sul Americano (Portuguese for South American Championship). As per usual the tournament gathered some of the finest black belts in the continent, which included Meyram Maquine, Almeida Jiu-Jitsu’s top talent Leonardo Lara, Luis Ribas, Cleber Sousa, and Elder Junior, Dream Art’s Lucas Gualberto, Rafael Paganini, Uanderson Ferreira, Fratres’ Munis Brothers, Mauricio Oliveira, Pedro Elias, Helder “Tropeco” Junior, Alliance’s Gabriel Henrique, Harryson Pereira, to name a few.

One of the super-stars on the Brazilian circuit, former IBJJF World champion and 2023 silver medalist, Meyram Maquine, returned to competition since his Mundial appearance in California earlier in the year. The dynamic grappler had a tougher time than many would expect in his run to the South American final with only one submission and 3 matches with tight victory margins (2 points), nevertheless, he pulled through for another gold medal.

Another name on the rise in the jiu-jitsu scene is Leandro Rounaud of Team Fratres. The dynamic grappler managed another gold medal in a huge lightweight division stacked with top-tier talent such as Guilherme Rocha, Victor Nithael, Marlus Salgado, Julio Arantes, and Luis Ribas, to name a few. A very note-worthy performance.

The breakthrough performance at the Sul Americano went to rookie black belt Brigida Felipe of Vision. The talented middleweight was making her debut in the new division and what a debut that was. Double gold for Felipe, 6 matches, and 3 submissions.
