English Translation: Five fighters from the U.S. academies of Daniel Moraes and Victor Huber (Vitinho) won medals here in the Masters and Seniors Jiu-Jitsu Championship. The competition, held in July at the Tijuca Tennis Club, was organized by the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Confederation. Athletes gathered from various gyms around the country and from abroad.

Daniel and Vitinho decided to invite some of their best students from their academies in the city of Jacksonville, Florida. The result was highly positive. Black belt Charlie Matthews, 51, was runner-up in his category and third in absolute, while purple belt Michael LaBelle, 48, got two third places. Roy Phillipe, 36, won the runner-up in his category and Perry Brown, 43, was third. Brown belt Robert Corbin, 37, lost his fight, but according to Vitinho, gave a great performance on the mat.

According to Daniel Moraes, this exchange is critical for their students to acquire international experience and put into practice all the lessons learned during the training. Furthermore, they can do a self-assessment to know where they can improve further.

Whether it’s your first competition or your hundredth, competing in a brazilian jiu-jitsu tournament is always an exciting experience. Competition allows you to test yourself, assess strengths and weaknesses in your jiu-jitsu game, and it builds a spirit of teamwork and camaraderie.
