Copa Pódio, which in December wrapped up last Jiu-Jitsu season in the Southern Brazilian city of Porto Alegre, bore a number of lessons for us practitioners.

One of the most instructive—and hotly disputed—matches saw US national “JT” Torres and eventual lightweight GP winner Leandro Lo lock horns in gi-clad combat. The Cicero Costha student beat everybody he faced, with the exception of JT. “He caught me off guard; I wasn’t prepared for his game,” said Lo.


Copa Pódio will be back again in June or July, this time in Rio de Janeiro with a middleweight GP, and again Lo and representatives from Gracie Barra, Atos, Soul Fighters and Lloyd Irvin will be in the mix, with others to be announced shortly.
