Andre Galvão owned the 2014 Pan. Two gold medals (absolute and ultra-heavy), adult male team title, ending Alliance’s 4-year streak, wife Angelica winning at brown belt were some of the goals achieved last week in Irvine.

Even so, looking back, Galvão says that he still has a lot to improve and correct. He talked to GRACIEMAG’s Vitor Freitas about the 2014 Pan.

The ultra-heavy final against Alex Trans

“I was very focused in all my matches. I knew that he likes to put people in the 50/50 guard so I blocked that. I worked well on top, defending his attempts to sweep me and managed to get to his back. I couldn’t put the hooks in because I rushed to attack his neck. In the end, he came on top, but I was able to control it well to win.”

The absolute final with Leandro Lo

“My goal in that match was to give the least amount of space possible to Lo. I wanted to presure him from beginning to end. I like to stack my opponent but it was hard against Lo. Only in the end I was able to do it. Lo is an awesome opponent and I always learn a lot watching his matches. His guard game is unique.”
