The new generation is coming and already showing what it’s bringing to the table. The latest leg of the WPJJC Trials took place last weekend in San Antonio, Texas, and there a star of this incoming generation was revealed.
Kaue Damasceno, a Nova União brown belt, was the big name of the under-92 kg brown/black belt division, as he beat a game Rodrigo Pinheiro in the final to secure his travel to Abu Dhabi for the main event. The Fábio Andrade student also shone in the absolute, where he stepped aside in the semifinals to let Bruno Bastos go through.
