Great achievement at the NO GI Worlds this Weekend!

Gracie Barra, Jiu Jitsu, Bjj, Martial Arts, Hinsdale, Naperville, Self Defense, Karate, Judo, Wrestling, BullyingThis Weekend our competition Team brought back great results from The Walter Pyramid in Long Beach CA.

Two of our Black Belts are now among the top 3 NO GI black belts in the world! Prof Sergio Costa and Prof Dave Domzalski took up the challenge this weekend at the NO GI World Championships and both are coming back to GB Downers with medals for our team!

Stevan Glodic won his first match good and clear and seemed to be one of the favorites for the podium, however our half guard expert got hurt during the quarter finals and had to withdraw from the tournament at this point.

Coach Chris Hansom had a good campaign and learnt a tone on his debut competing outside the Midwest, We are confident our ” MMA” Chris is coming back of this World Championships even stronger .

We are really proud of our athletes who aren’t coming back with medals only but also with a tone of experience to be shared on the mats with our team!


Congratulations guys our team is extremely proud of you!
