GMA member André Galvão is very happy with his students’ performance at the recent Worlds No-Gi.
He tells us about two of them.
“The first one is Ronaldo Candido, who was the brown belt featherweight champion. He fought four times for the title. First, he scored 8-0 over a world champion opponent, then he ran over his adversary, with a 18-0 socre. In the semifinal, candido defeated Renzo Gracie’s Gianni Grippo with a guillotine choke. In the final, he submitted Gabriel Martins with a foot lock”, tells Galvão.
André remembers that Ronaldo has a perfect record this year: “He has only six months as a brown belt and won it all this year. He won the Pan as a purple belt, got the brown belt and won the Brazilian Nationals, the Worlds and the Worlds NO-GI. He has not been defeated this year”.
The other pupil is purple belt Denilson “Cowboy” Bischiliari, and Galvão tells us why: “He won five fights last Saturday. There was no easy fights for him. Bischiliari won the Abu Dabhi Pro in the absolute and his weight category. Remember his name”.
