Bruno Bastos has been making life rough for his opponents. The black belt nabbed second place in Abu Dhabi, losing only to Rodolfo Vieira on points.

“I injured my arm, made it to the final with just one arm. I couldn’t believe it! But I’ve already gone through a lot of physiotherapy and will be at the Worlds looking for more medals no problem,” he assures.

The fighter has one more challenge before then, though – but as a teacher. Bruno wants to lead his team to the top of the winners’ podium in Dallas, and his chance will come May 8, when the Dallas International Open is set to take place.

“We’re going to put a bunch of guys in the event, we want to get a hundred in there. We’ll even have a reinforcement – Kaue Damasceno, one of our best purple belts in Brazil will be there,” says the Nova União rep.

“In the short time I’ve been here I think we’ve had good results. Making it to first place at the Pan and Worlds is still a hard goal to achieve, but we have what it takes at the regional tournaments. We took second at the Houston Open, for example. Here in Dallas there are other great teams, but we’re going for top spot just as we will at the Phoenix Open. That will be the kickoff for us. Who knows? We may even make it onto the podium at the Worlds, too,” he adds.

So on May 8 the competition areas at Dallas’s Kitty Magee Arena will receive athletes from all over Texas, a state boasting a great number of the USA’s finest teams.
