Gordon Ryan dominates to win double gold at the No-Gi Pan

Share it

Exciting battles marked the first day of the Pan Jiu-Jitsu IBJJF No-Gi Championship, held this Saturday in New York.

Local athlete Gordon Ryan of Renzo Gracie Academy did great in the ultra-heavy and absolute divisions. Known for his success in American events where only the submission can determine a winner, the 2015 ADCC champion student under John Danaher showed his effectiveness and kept up his habit of winning without any need for a point count.

In the ultra-heavy division, Ryan bested Max Gimenis (GFTeam) with a rear naked choke. In the open, facing Kaynan Duarte (Atos), Ryan had an uphill battle, trailing his opponent on the scoreboard. At the end of the match, Ryan tied the score as he swept back, and then went for the mount that would give him the win. Refusing to allow the points, Kaynan turned sideways, and Ryan submitted him with another RNC.

Also noteworthy were light featherweight champion João Miyao; Gianni Gripo, who defeated AJ Agazarm in the lightweight final; Marcos Tinoco, the medium heavyweight champion; and Romulo Caju, who beat Thiago Sá to take down the heavyweight division.
