First World Championships

Big thanks to Draculino for sharing this on his blog, the first ever IBJJF World Championships in 1996!   Turn down the music and watch some of the old guard go to work.  I am not familiar with 95% of these guys, but Draculino is found throughout.

Notice the great throws and take downs!  Judo seems to have been much more of a prevalent aspect of BJJ training in the recent past.  Sorely needed in my humble opinion.

Good luck to all those fighting in a few weeks!  I was hoping to make it this year but it is not looking doable.  Hopefully next year.
