The 2014 IBJJF Pan Jiu-Jitsu No-Gi Championship started and ended on Saturday, Sept. 27 in a long day at the Community College of New York. The day began with male adult blue belts and ended with the various master division absolutes.
But in between, the athletes battled it out with one another all while representing their team. There were many teams large and small present at the tournament but the trophies were only given to the top three.
Because this was a larger tournament, the team points were distributed among the adults, the masters and the females.
The adult male division team trophies went to these teams:
1 – Alliance Marcelo Garcia – 74
2 – Gracie Barra – 49
3 – Team Lloyd Irvin – 43
What brought in the most points were both black belt and brown belt stand-outs from each team.
For the females, Luiza Monteiro and Ana Lowry represented Cicero Costha and the PSLPB team all by themselves. Because they won both weight and absolute at both brown and black, it was enough to earn the first place. The second place was earned by the help of Maia Matalon who topped the podium of the purple belt open class division.
1 – PSLPB Cicero Costha – 36
2 – Fifty/50 Jiu-Jitsu – 18
3 – Bonsai JJ – Chicago – 18
For the master divisions, the team trophies were distributed as follows:
1 – Renzo Gracie – 138
2 – Alliance Marcelo Garcia – 97
3 – Gracie Barra – 74
The older athletes deserve their credit, too!
