Mike ‘Miketo’ Resch of GMA Cavalcanti Jiu-Jitsu Luxembourg sent two of his students to the U.S. recently. From April 26 to May 10 the students will train at the headquarters of Master Ricardo Cavalcanti’s.
Recently the students competed at the 2014 IBJJF Las Vegas Spring Open and earned a bronze for their team.
Here, Miketo explains the accomplishment of his student and the team:
“One of my two fighters, Björn Backes, who also helps me to establish a Cavalcanti Jiu Jitsu Team in Germany got the bronze medal in the adult white belts heavyweight category.
Considering that this was Björn’s first major Jiu-Jitsu competition ever, I am very proud of this result.
I would especially like to thank thank Raphael Geib from Germany, who provides us a training room in his martial arts academy in order to establish Cavalcanti Jiu Jitsu Germany! My biggest thanks go to my master and friend Master Ricardo Cavalcanti for taking care of my competitors and coaching them, as I was not able to travel with them!”
