Montreal, Canada’s Centre Pierre Charbonneau hosted the Montreal Open Jiu-Jitsu Championship last weekend. The IBJJF tournament gathered some of the biggest gentle-art teams from the region.

At black belt, there was no competition for Oliver Geddes. Literally. The English Roger Gracie student joined the adult contest alone and took both the medium heavyweight and absolute titles. Quite a shocker, given how Montreal is the city from where the likes of GSP and other thick-skinned black belts come.

The big name at brown belt was Timothy Edward of Combative Arts Academy, who won the featherweight and absolute divisions.

In the black belt master division, Fernando Zulick of Action and Reaction Toronto team took gold at middleweight and open weight.

In the overall team standings, BTT scored the most points, with Gracie Barra Montreal in second and Toronto BJJ in third.
