Brazilian Top Team black belt Diego Gamonal did a fine job at the No-Gi Pan in New York, winning the heavyweight division.
“The matches were really tough. I fought in a really stacked division, but it all worked out. It was the first time I competed at a No-Gi Pan and I intend to be back next year,” remarks Diego.
Now the fighter forges ahead in his class-teaching tour in the USA and gets ready for the upcoming IBJJF events in the country, the Miami Open and No-Gi Worlds. After spending three months in Portland, Oregon, he goes on to spend two months at BTT Boston, a GMA of ours, alongside Professor Daniel Mirel.
“I’m still working to get the gang ready for the Miami Open and No-Gi Worlds. I just don’t know at what weight group yet because it’s hard to keep up a diet here (laughs)!” he says in closing.
Do as Diego Gamonal does and participate in IBJJF events.
