Equipe Jucão is happy to announce that Jucão has taken another gold medal home from an international tournament. At the 2012 European Open Jiu-Jitsu Championship Jucão won two medals for his performance:
BLACK BELT SENIOR 3 OPEN: Ailson “Jucão” Henrique Brites – FIRST
BLACK BELT SENIOR 3 HEAVY: Ailson “Jucão” Henrique Brites – SECOND
Ailson Brites Jucao vs Marco Galzenati, Italia
Ailson Brites Jucao vs Van Dick Oliveira (Joao Roque)
Jucao has won gold medals at international tournaments for over two decades. Since he founded his own academy in New York and New Jersey in 2008, he has won gold medals in six of the six international tournaments he has competed in, often taking the gold in multiple divisions.
EJU had its 4th Annual Holiday Dinner and Graduation at Boi Na Brasa in Newark today. Among the many belt promotions was a new black belt in the Equipe Jucao family: Alex Izaguirre, owner and lead instructor at the Storming Mountain Academy. Congratulations to Alex and all the promotions!
Effective immediately, Team Jucao USA is excited to announce its new location at 1261 Broadway, 4th Floor, between 31st and 32nd Streets. The newly built facility is operated by Elite Plus Fitness, a full service Mixed Martial Arts gym, and features expanded mat area, locker rooms and showers. An updated schedule will be announced in the coming months.
