No-gi season is upon us and the championships are coming up soon. The first of the two major tournaments this part of the year is the Pan No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu Championship on September 27 in New York City.
The Pan title is a major win and top black belts travel to the east coast each year to participate and earn their gold for their resume. In previous years, black belts who have taken to the mats are Samir Chantre, Osvaldo Queixinho, Caio Terra, AJ Agazarm, Garry Tonon, Murilo Santana, Vitor Oliveira, Lucas Lepri, Renan Borges, Laercio Fernandes, Bruno Fernandes, Pablo Popovitch, Roberto Alencar, Sofia Amarante, Kayron Gracie, Davi Ramos, and more!
The list is still growing but you can bet on Rodrigo Freitas, Gianni Grippo, Mark Ramos, Bruno Bastos to be at this year’s edition.
