This past weekend concluded the 2017 World Jiu Jitsu championship. For many on the team this was the last worlds at their current belt level. Continuing his dominant performance in the brown belt division Rudson Telles had 10 matches, submitting 7 opponents and taking home double gold! This closes the final chapter in one of the most successful brown belt runs in the history of the sport. Going into his black belt he has won worlds at every belt level and we are excited to see what the future holds for him!
Also continuing his amazing performance from Pans, Andy Tomas Murasaki won his weight and came up a little short in the absolute taking second. This closes out his career as a Juvenile where he captured 3 world titles. Next year he debuts in the adult division!
Taylor Kettler who had an impressive two year run at blue belt ended this year worlds with 3rd in his weight and 2nd in the absolute. Taylor is an absolute beast on the mat and look forward to seeing him next year in the purple belt division!
OSS new comer Pedro Dias also did exceptionally well. Overcoming many difficulties to make it to the US, Pedro fought his way to the final before falling short by reffs decision.
OSS Athletes Jeremy Nitta, Guthierry Barbosa Anthony Cruz, and Karen Danielle all fought well but came up short. Never stop believing, evolving and chasing your dreams. It's never the goal that matters but the journey and what we find out along the way is worth more then any medal.
