IBJJF EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS - IN JANUARY 2019

THE PARA BELLUM / GFTEAM ZURICH SQUAD WENT TO LISSABON REPRESENTING OUR GREAT TEAM AT THE IBJJF EUROPEANS 2019 AND CAME BACK WITH SOME SOLID MEDALS AND SOME VERY GOOD PERFORMANCES!


LAUREN BROWN, OUR FEMALE POWER HOUSE PURPLE BELT SHOWED UP PREPARED AND DELIVERED AN OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE - WINNING THE IBJJF EUROPEAN TITLE 2019 AT FEMALE - PURPLE BELT - MASTER 2!

SHE DIDN'T LET HER OPPONENT ANY CHANCES, AT ALL!



LAUREN BROWN - THE FEMALE PURPLE BELT - MASTER 2 - IBJJF EUROPEAN CHAMPION 2019

AFTER HER TITLE WIN IN THE WEIGHT CATEGORY, SHE KEPT GOING AND STARTED AS WELL AT THE OPEN WEIGHT. LIKE A CARDIO MACHINE SHE ATTACKED THE WHOLE 5MIN OF HER OPEN WEIGHT FIGHT, JUST GETTING STOPPED BY A SILLY REFEREE DECISION AGAINST HER.. NO POINTS, NO ADVANTAGES AND NO ATTACKS OF HER OPPONENT - HER OPPONENT WAS THE WHOLE FHIGHT JUST DEFENDING AND HAD NO OFFENSES AT ALL.. EVEN WHEN LAUREN ALMOST PASSED THE GUARD AT THE END, THE REFEREEE SEEMED TO WATCH ANOTHER FIGHT AND DIDN'T GIVE HER ANY SCORE.

BUT ALL THIS CAN'T TAKE AWAY ANYTHING OF THE AMAZING PERFORMANCE THAT LAUREN DELIVERED.

CONGRATS FOR THIS HUGE ACCOMPLISHMENT, BESIDES OF BEING A SINGLE MOTHER, IN A 100% JOB, AND JUST RECENTLY MOVED FROM THE U.S. TO LIVE HERE IN ZURICH, SWITZERLAND!


LAUREN BROWN - THE FEMALE PURPLE BELT - MASTER 2 - IBJJF EUROPEAN CHAMPION 2019

ANOTHER OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE WAS DELIVERED BY OUR MEXICAN POWER BEAR AND WHITE BELT - AZAHEL GONZALES.

IN HIS LATE 40'S (46 YEARS OLD) HE IS STILL A FORCE AND TRAINING HARD AND CONSTENTLY THREE DAYS A WEEK!



THIS CONSISTENCY AND HIS WILL TO WIN WAS PUSHING HIM TO REACH FOR THE BRONZE MEDAL AT THIS YEARS EUROPEANS!

WITH GREAT TAKEDOWNS AND STRONG GUARD PASSING ATTACKS - HE BROUGHT ALL HIS OPPONENTS UNDER HEAVY PRESSURE AND SHOW AN AMAZING PERFORMANCE!

CONGRATS TO AZAHEL FOR THIS BIG ACCOMPLISHMENT IN HIS FIRST YEAR COMPETING AT THE IBJJF EUROPEANS - WHITE BELT - MASTER 3 DIVISION!

KEEP GOING LIKE THAT AND THE SKY IS THE LIMIT!!!!!!!


ANDREW MUELLER, A BLUE BELT LIGHTWEIGHT, COMPETING AT MASTER 1, AND OUR NEWEST ADDITION TO THE TEAM, STARTED AND WON TWO OF HIS FIGHTS IN A GREAT MANNER.

JUST TO LOOSE A VERY CLOSE THIRD FIGHT. AFTER ONLY TRAINING ONE MONTH WITH US PARA BELLUM / GFTEAM ZURICH HE ALREADY SHOW THE SAME PASSION AND DRIVE LIKE ALL OF OUR PARA BELLUM SOLDIERS!

GREAT PERFORMANCE EVEN BY NOT WINNING A MEDAL.


ISSEY - OUR HEAVYWEIGHT BLUE BELT - HAD REALLY BAD LUCK IN HIS FIRST FIGHT. BESIDES FIGHTING AGAINST A YOUNG PROFESSIONAL BRAZILIAN BLUE BELT ATHLETE OF GFTEAM, A PAN AMS CHAMPION AND WORLD CHAMPION MEDALIST - ISSEY SHOWED GREAT HEART AND FOUGHT A GOOD FIGHT.

EVENTUALLY LOOSING AGAINST HIS OPPONENT, BUT REPRESENTING WITH A GOOD PERFORMANCE!


SIMON SCHEURING - A WHITE BELT, MASTER 1, MIDDLEWEIGHT - TRIED ALL HIS BEST IN HIS FIGHT AT THE EUROPEANS. SIMON TRIED TO BUILD UP HIS STRONG CLOSED GUARD GAME. IN A CLOSE AND GOOD FIGHT HE CAME OUT SHORT AND LOST HIS FIRST MATCH BY POINTS. WITH SOME ADAPTATIONS, SOME MORE TRAINING AND A BIT MORE LUCK, HE SURELY WILL WIN NEXT TIME! KEEP GOING!


IN THE BROWN BELT, MASTER 2, -70KG DIVISION - ONE OF OUR MOST TECHNICAL COMPETITOR - EMIL KADAKEVLIEV - MANAGED TO WIN HIS FIRST FIGHT BY A TEXTBOOK BERIMBOLO BACK ATTACK AND CHOKE! THE FIGHT ONLY LASTED AROUND 30 SECONDS! WHAT A GREAT START!

UNFORTUNATELY HE LOST HIS SECOND FIGHT - BY A RAZOR SHARP REFEREE DECISION! WHICH STOPPED HIS RUN FOR THE MEDAL IMMEDIATELY.


FOR OUR OLDER BLACK BELTS - DANIEL DARUGNA AND STEFAN RÜEGG - IT WAS TRULY A HARD TIME. DANIEL FOUGHT A TOUGH FIGHT LOOSING AGAINST A STRONG SPIDER GUARD PLAYER IN HIS FIRST FIGHT - WHICH STOPPED HIM TO REACH FOR A MEDAL.


STEFAN ON HIS WAY, WAS MANAGING TO WIN HIS FIRST FIGHT IN A ONE SIDED AFFAIR.


HIS OPPONENT DIDN'T HAVE ANY CHANCES AND WITHOUT LOOSING TOO MUCH ENERGY STEFAN TOOK HIS OPPONENT DOWN, PASSED HIS GUARD, GOT THE BACK MOUNT AND WON THE FIGHT BY POINTS AFTER 5MIN IN A GREAT MANNER.



THE SECOND FIGHT WAS A DIFFERENT STORY. STEFAN'S OPPONENT WAS WELL PREPARED, AFTER THE FIRST FEW MINUTES IN A WELL BALANCED FIGHT STEFAN'S OPPONENT MANAGED TO TAKE DOWN STEFAN AND STARTED TO APPLY GUARD PASSING WHICH LED TO A KNEE BAR SUBMISSION.

THIS WAS A DISAPPOINTING END FOR STEFAN'S CAMPAIGN AT THE EUROPEANS! BUT HE WILL BE BACK FOR SURE NEXT YEAR - TO PULL OUT A BETTER RESULT BY TRAINING AND PREPARING LIKE A MANIAC.





UROS DOMANOVIC IS WINNING PRETTY EVERYTHING HE IS ENTERING AT THE IBJJF CIRCUS ALL OVER EUROPE. SO THE STACK WAS ALREADY HIGH ON HIM TO WIN SOMETHING AT THE EUROPEANS 2019. AGAINST ALL EUROPEAN CITIZEN THAT UROS FOUGHT ALREADY, HE WON.

BUT THESE ARE THE IBJJF EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS AND NEXT TO EUROPEANS, THERE ARE AS WELL ALL OTHER COUNTRIES ALLOWED TO COMPETE.


UROS DOMANOVIC FIGHTING AT THE IBJJF EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS 2019

SO UROS IS NOT JUST FACING THE BEST OF EUROPE - HIS IS ALWAYS FACING THE BEST OF THE WORLD AT THE EUROPEANS BLACK BELT ADULT CATEGORY.

UROS HAD A TOUGH OPPONENT WITH HELTON JUNIOR SILVA, A CICERO COSTHA BLACK BELT, NOW TRAINING AT ATOS JIU JITSU IN SAN DIEGO AND ONE OF THE BEST IN HIS WEIGHT CATEGORY AT SUPER HEAVYWEIGHT.

BUT EVEN AGAINST A BEAST LIKE HELTON, UROS DID VERY WELL.

THIS TIME IT WAS IN THE FAVOR OF HELTON AND UROS LOST A RAZOR SHARP DECISION BY ONLY TWO ADVANTAGES - ENDING AS WELL UROS CAMPAIGN TO REACH FOR EUROPEAN GOLD.
