There was no lack of excitement at the European Open 2011 on Friday.
The absolute purple belt matches did a fine job of raising the thermostat in Lisbon.
Besides big wins from Mackenzie Dern and De’ Alonzio Jackson, the day stored further excitement.
As always, GRACIEMAG’s lenses honed in on all the action going on, bringing 15 instants from the party that is the European Open Jiu-Jitsu Championship.
Stay tuned to the GRACIEMAG at the European Open Blog for all the latest from the championship.
This Saturday, the black belts take to the mats.
