The results could not have been more thrilling with 7 competitors all making it to the podium for medals.

Alex “Raffa” Couto also took gold in the Pee Wee 2 division beating the current champion from the previous year.

Janpaul Piñeiro was a fan favorite after being awarded the bronze medal in a tough match up with the current kid’s international world’s winner.

At the orange belt Teen level, Mikael Codinach finished with an impressive GI choke to take the gold while Christina Pellicio took second after winning her first match by armbar.

Alliance Miami excels at Jiu-Jitsu competitions

The final matches of the day were the green belt division where Eddy “Spiderman” Dahbura and Anthony Codinach took second respectively.

It was an overall a great competition for Alliance Miami; once again showing great competitors at the highest level of competition.

Over the past year; many have asked Professor Javill Byron about his teaching methods and why his student can perform of a grand stage.

His response was simple “I teach my students 2 things; Jiu-Jitsu and how to understand Jiu-Jitsu.  They have a better base that most students because I challenge them to understand why things happen the way they do.  Jiu-Jitsu man; I love it.”
