The IBJJF Pans 2020 

The IBJJF Pans 2020 saw quite a lot of competitors battle it out over a span of four days, from October 8-11.

IBJJF Pans 2020 resultsAs per the protocols, everyone was asked to take tehri temperature before arriving at the event. Masks were mandatory for everyone bar people competing on the mats. Furthermore, the IBJJF instated a rule that every competitor can ring just one person with them, or a coach for their corner, minimizing presence in the stands. Given that this was a four-day event, the measures proved effective, at least as far as we know up till now.

Apart from the black belts really putting on a performance worth remembering on October 11, the brown belts also shed light on some emerging talent that will undoubtedly cause lots of trouble to seasoned professionals in the sport.

Notable Moments At The 2020 IBJJF Pans

Where do we begin? First of all, something that didn’t directly have anything to do with the matches at the IBJJF Pans 2020  – the rule change announcement. It was the Pans where the IBJJF officially announced that from 2021, heel hooks and knee raps will be legal at IBJJF tournaments, albeit only in brown and black kelt divisions, and only in No-Gi matches (for starters).

Other notable moments include the light-featherweight winner Josh Cisneros, who beat a bunch of seasoned veterans, submitting a fair number of them, and even got one over Paulo Miyao, via a referee’s decision. The IBJJF pans 2020 also saw the debut of new black belts like Jackso and Samuel Nagai, who really proved their worth. The tactics of scoring first, and surviving everything later that Thiago Macedo applied in the lightweight division also drew a lot of attention, but it was an extremely effective tactic after all.

Among the giants on the mats, Luiz Panza and Max Gimenis proved why they were favorites, with Gimenis taking the win in the finals via a 10 x 0 result.

Among the ladies, the lightweight final between superstars Luiza Monteiro and Nathalie Riberio was nothing short of a spectacle! Luiza took the win, and did al to of the same in the absolute division as well, emerging as the overall best performer among the ladies.
