In surfing Kelly Slater is the undisputed best ever Champion with 11 titles, in BJJ Alliance team is looking to make a similar statement. The Pan is not even cold yet and Alliance team is already preparing for the Worlds. Alliance leader Romero "Jacare" Cavalcanti is already rallying his troops to be ready for another team Gold. Even as he takes care of his new academy Romero is on the move:
"We are running at full speed, the new academy is growing with lots of new students and we have a full schedule with 4 to 5 classes a day and new programs such as "fundamentals and intermediate". Everything is going great here, however we haven't lost sight of another goal, the Worlds.
I am very happy with our performance at the Pan and the quality of our team. We won the adult male and female and came in second on master/senior and juvenile. We had 250 athletes competing in that event and now we are going full bore towards the Worlds. Our team is already training hard to achieve that goal. "
There you have it, Alliance Eagle doesn't sleep. The big question is who will be able to stop or even slow down the juggernaut

Pan Champs 3 Years In A Row!

After our training camp in Atlanta, Jacare flew out early to California for the Black Belt bracket drawings. While there, he was able to drop in and teach a class at Cobrinha's academy. With over 50 students in attendance, this has become our team's launching pad for the major tournaments on the west coast. 

The event itself was no easy task, as defending champions we had everyone gunning for us. Our coaches worked diligently all weekend giving our fighters guidance. With Jacare, Fabio, Marcelo and many others floating around we were in good hands! From the opening day we were able to get a step ahead of the competition and our higher belts weren't going to let that slip away.  

After the black belts finished on Sunday Jacare and Fabio found themselves in that familiar spot on top of the podium. Alliance is crowned the Pan Champions for the third consecutive year!

Alliance HQ has always been a dominant force at these events and score lots of points for the team. Congratulations to all of our guys who fought so hard these last few months and competed like champions at the event!

 Special thanks to all of the training partners who push our competitors day in and day out. You are the reason we are champions!
