On Saturday, June 24, the AJP TOUR JACKSONVILLE INTERNATIONAL JIU-JITSU CHAMPIONSHIP 2023 – GI & NO-GI championship was held in Jacksonville.
This was the first AJP US circuit championship that, in addition to its already famous AJP GRAND SLAM MIAMI, will return to the country this year with a total of 7 events in the year and more to come in the 2024 circuit.
The event was attended by 7 Fight Sports Club athletes: Professor Joao Costa, Professor Leilani Bernales, Adolfo Suares, Kauane Ramos Da Silva, Juan Orbe, Ricardo Vazquez and Bernardita Campos. That number of athletes was enough so that at the end of the day Fight Sports Club, was placed in first place by teams. This demonstrates the commitment assumed between coaches and students to carry out the objectives.
Black belt athletes such as Professor Joao Costa, Kauane Ramos Da Silva and Adolfo Suares came to take their place on the podium of the event. Joao Costa was in the same bracket as his teammate Adolfo Suares. The 2 competitors had to fight each other for the final of the 85kg adult NO-GI black belt category. Joao finished in first place and Adolfo in second, who also competed in the adult 85 kg kimono final.
