2019 - IBJJF Pan Pacific Championship

November 19, 2019

Every year at the end of October, the IBJJF hosts the Pan Pacific Championship down in Melbourne, Victoria at the MSAC (Melbourne Sports & Aquatic Centre). This tournament is the biggest in Australia and competitors from all around the country and world participate in the event. 


An awesome effort from the Galeb Brothers BJJ team with some amazing results to take away from the 3-day event. A big congratulations to everybody who went down to compete or support the competitors.


Paulo & Greg, who were promoted to the black belt last month competed for the first time at the highest level, a great experience for the both of them and still managing to make the podium!
