Fired up with their achievements at recent IBJJF events in Houston and Chicago, Brazil 021 heads full steam into the Pan-American Championship starting tomorrow in Irvine, California.
While the team led by our GMAs André Negão and Hannette Staack took seventeen athletes to the Chicago Open and went home with fifteen medals, to the Pan Brazil 021 is taking nine and plenty determination. Among them, Hannette, 32, herself, in pursuit of yet another gold medal to add to her vast collection.
“The school is really motivated by Hannette’s return to competition. We don’t focus on the quantity of athletes bu on the quality of those students who show their commitment to classes geared towards competitors. We started these classes in January and the results have proven to be positive,” states André.
