Three more comps entered by our squad lately: the 10th BJJ League was held in Krakow, Poland, while in Italy our team went to 2 tournament in the same day!
10th BJJ League, Krakow, Poland:
Patryk Horbatiuk from RGC Zawiercie took silver in his first blue belt comp (he was promoted in February) under 76kg. From RGC Dabrowa Gornicza, both Kamil Ciepulis and Daniel Andrzejewski placed second, Kamil in the white belt under 64kg, and Daniel in the juniors division under 69kg.
In Italy the II Montana International BJJ Cup was held in Modena, while on the same day (Saturday 5th of April) the ADCC Italy had its first leg this year in Sesto San Giovani. We had 4 competitors in Modena representing our team, but only Simone Baldi reached the finals and won, taking the gold medal in the blue belt under 64kg. Its worth mentioning that our friend Yan Cabral won his only match in the black belt, under 73kg. Yan has moved to Barcelona and opened his school there.
Alessio de Liberti and Andrea Lavaggi were the only ones fighting in the ADCC Italy, both in the same division (Class A under 73kg). They reached the finals and fought each other, with Alessio winning by submission and bringing the gold to Livorno.
Congratulations to them all!
Forza Rio Grappling Club!
