Today’s “Young Guns” segment features one of the few competitors out there that has won the unofficial IBJJF Grand Slam title. In 2011, Jimmy won the Mundials, Pans, Euros and the Brazilian Nationals as a brown belt. As a result of his stellar performances, Master Lloyd Irvin awarded Jimmy his BB in July 2011.
As a newly minted black belt, Jimmy has a huge road ahead of him with challenges such as Abmar Barbosa, Clark Gracie, Lucas Leite and Marcelo Garcia. Will this holder of the Grand Slam title overcome these roadblocks in order to stand high atop the Mundial podium? Time can only tell.
Enjoy the match:
