LOTS OF MEDALS AT THE IBJJF GENEVA OPEN 2018

THE GFTEAM ZURICH / PARA BELLUM JIU JITSU SQUAD HAD A VERY SUCCESSFUL LAST WEEKEND. THE SQUAD COULD WIN SEVERAL MEDALS AND PODIUM PLACES AT THE IBJJF GENEVA OPEN 2018.


WE WENT THERE WITH 7X COMPETITORS AND EVERY SINGLE ONE BROUGHT BACK AT LEAST ONE MEDAL, SOME OF THEM EVEN TWO OR MORE!

FOR A TEAM WHICH EXIST ONLY 10X MONTHS, COMPETING AT SUCH HIGH LEVEL INTERNATIONAL OPEN, IS AN AMAZING AND A HUGE ACHIEVEMENT.

WE ARE MORE THAN PROUD!


NICOLAS HATT, OUR BOARD COMMITEE & PRESIDENT OF OUR CLUB, SHOWED UP AND DELIVERED A TOTAL DOMINANCE PERFORMANCE IN BOTH GI & NO GI.

DURING HIS CAMPAIGN HE MANAGED TO WIN NOT ONLY A SECOND PLACE AT GI, HE WAS FURTHER STEAMROLLING AS WELL THE COMPETITION AT NO GI ALL THE WAY UP TO WIN THE GOLD MEDAL IN HIS DIVISION! A TOTAL DOMINANCE PERFORMANCE - ONE OF A KIND!!!! CONGRATS BRO FOR THIS HUGE CAMPAIGN!


IN THE ADULT BROWN BELT DIVISION EMIL KADAKEVLIEV SHOWED HIS TECHNICAL & AMAZING GUARD GAME. IN HIS FIRST FIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF A SCRAMBLE AND JUST SECONDS AFTER THE START, EMIL PULLED A KNEEBAR OUT OF HIS TRICK-BOX, SO FAST AND TECHNICAL, THAT HIS OPPONENT COULD NOT FOLLOW UP FAST ENOUGH WITH THE TAP OUT! FORTUNATELY NOTHING SERIOUS HAPPENED TO THE KNEE. EMIL COULD WIN HIS FIRST FIGHT IN 30X SECONDS - YES THAT FAST! IN HIS SECOND FIGHT HE CAME UP SHORT AFTER A HARD FOUGHT FIGHT AGAINST A SEASONED, TOUGH AND WELL KNOWN OPPONENT. ALL IN ALL EMIL SHOWED AGAIN A STRONG PERFORMANCE AND CEMENTED HIS NAME AS A HARD WORKER & TECHNICAL GUARD WIZZARD BY WINNING THE BRONZE MEDAL!

OUR BEARDED SAMURAI, ANDREAS THORMANN BOUNCED BACK AFTER A NOT SO GOOD PERFORMANCE AT THE LAST TOURNAMENT ONE MONTH AGO. INSTEAD OF BEEING GRIEVE HE TRAINED HARDER, MORE COMMITTED AND CAME BACK TO BEAT HIS OPPONENT WITH A BOMB OF A DOUBLE LEG TAKEDOWN. HIS OPPONENT A BLACK BELT IN JAPANESE JU JUTSU, COULD NOT REGAIN THE CONTROL OF THE FIGHT AFTER THIS POWER SLAM, AND ANDREAS THEREFORE WON HIS FIGHT AND THE BRONZE MEDAL. SHOWING GREAT HEART & WILL - IN PARA BELLUM STYLE!!!!

CONGRAGTS SAMURAI!!!


ANDREW LIYANAGE FOUGHT HARD BATTLES AGAINST TOUGH OPPONENTS. GIVING UP WAS NEVER AN OPTION FOR HIM, WITH HIS TRADEMARK DOUBLE AND SINGLE LEG ATTACKS AND A HEAVY TOP & PASSING GAME, HE MANAGED TO WIN THE BRONZE MEDAL IN HIS DIVISION - A GREAT AND HUGE ACHIEVEMENT FOR HIM.

HE CHANGED HIS LIFESTYLE TOTALLY THE LAST FEW MONTHS SINCE HE STARTED JIU JITSU AND LOST MORE OF 10KG OF WEIGHT. KEEP GOING LIKE THAT, AND YOU WILL BECOME A FIERCE SUPER HEAVY WEIGHT FIGHTER IN YOUR DIVISION!



DAVID SHAPIRA, A PROMISING YOUNG TALENT IN THE WHITE BELT MEDIUM HEAVY DIVISION HAD A FLAWELESS PERFORMANCE!

IN PARA BELLUM STYLE HE DOMINATED ALL OF HIS OPPONENTS, SOME OF THE TOUGHEST ONES IN HIS DIVISION AND BEAT ALL OF THEM - TO WIN THE GOLD MEDAL. AFTER PATIENTLY WAITING THE MOST OF THE DAY FOR THE START OF HIS DIVISION - HE SHOVED THE FATIGUE AWAY AND JUST PERFORMED AT HIS BEST!

HUGE WIN FOR HIM - AND A CLEAR STATEMENT TO HIS DIVISION! CONGRATS!!!


UROS DOMANOVIC, FOUNDER & HEADINSTRUCTOR AT THE PARA BELLUM JIU JITSU ACADEMY / GFTEAM ZURICH HAD SOME VERY TOUGH FIGHTS! FIRST TIME IN THE SUPER HEAVY WEIGHT DIVISION AT ADULT BLACK BELT & IN HIS FIRST FIGHT HE ALREADY HAD THE TOUGHEST OPPONENT OF THIS TOURNAMENT - JACKSON SOUSA - A HIGH LEVEL BLACK BELT WITH WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS TITLES UNDER HIS BELT. UROS LOST THIS FIRST FIGHT, BUT BOUNCED BACK IMMEDIATELY IN HIS SECOND FIGHT BY BEATING A TOUGH AND SEASONED BLACK BELT AND VICE-EUROPEAN CHAMPION - ARYA ESFANDMAZ FROM THE ROGER GRACIE ACADEMY - WITH THIS WIN UROS WAS ABLE TO CLAIM THE SILVER MEDAL IN HIS WEIGHT CATEGORY.

UROS WENT FURTHER AND COMPETED AS WELL IN THE ADULT BLACK BELT OPEN WEIGHT DIVISION WHERE HE ONLY GOT STOPPED IN THE SEMIFINAL BY JACKSON SOUSA, ALL OTHER BLACK BELTS IN HIS WAY WHERE NO COMPETITION FOR OUR PHENOMEN. UROS CLAIMED THE BRONZE MEDAL IN THE OPEN WEIGHT DIVISION AT BLACK BELT AND BROUGHT HOME TWO VERY IMPORTANT MEDALS! WATCH OUT FOR HIM, HE IS ON THE WAY TO BECOME ONE OF THE BEST BLACK BELTS IN EUROPE!


THE OLD TIMER OF THE SQUAD, STEFAN RÜEGG - FOUNDER & HEADINSTRUCTOR AT PARA BELLUM JIU JITSU / GFTEAM ZURICH WON THE SILVER MEDAL IN THE MASTER 3 BLACK BELT OPEN WEIGHT DIVISION, AND HAD TWO TOUGH FIGHTS AGAINST ONE OF THE TOP BLACK BELTS OF HIS TIME - JOSE CARLOS HISSA GRAINA.
