2000 World Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Championships Results

Story by Chris Onzuka
Results courtesy of Brian Cimins at www.grapplers.com

Well, here it is for you Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu fanatics, the results of the 2000 World Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Championships thanks to our friend Brian Cimins of the Grapplers Quest and Grapplers.com. It looks like our FCF correspondent, and my brother, Mike Onzuka has gone MIA (missing in action). After his Day 2 report, he has not gotten in touch with anybody here and let us know how he and Kaleo Hosaka did in their matches. Their names are not in the top three, so I know they didn’t win the thing. Oh well, it is the salt mines in a third world country for the both of them. Enjoy the results.

One of the champions that we have to mention is BJ Penn, who won the Pena class (under 147 lbs.) in the Black Belt division, the class Royler Gracie has dominated since the first Mundial in 1996. Don’t get ahead of yourselves, Royler was unable to compete because of a bad injury. He announced his withdrawal from the tournament weeks before it. The crazy thing is BJ was awarded his black belt on the Monday before the Mundial. He prepared himself to compete in the Brown Belt division. He is the first Non-Brazilian to win a World BJJ Championship in the Black Belt division. Another note about BJ is that he placed second in the 1998 Mundial in the Blue Belt division. He has attained a black belt in a little over four years and is a World champion as a black belt, proving that it is well-deserved. You better believe that we will catch up with BJ and FCF readers will enjoy the fruits of our labor…and his.

HOOKnSHOOT Press Release:


On July 22,nd, 2000 HOOKnSHOOT in Evansville, Indiana hosted the first
American Qualifier for the 2001 Submission Wrestling World Championships. "This is our second year hosting these tournaments, and we have to say that the first year of was a great success. This year, we kicked off the series with a new weight class, the under 65.9 KG " states promoter Jeff Osborne.

As expected, the little guys were fast paced and exciting "We were impressed with the whole field. Last year we didn’t have one at 145 lbs. We were afraid we wouldn’t get enough applicants. This year proved us wrong" continues Osborne.

Mike Cardosa, a Jiu Jitsu stylist from Miami, Florida conquered the eight man field on July 22nd to come away with the trophy and the invitation to Abu Dhabi.


"The tapes are in to the Abu Dhabi Combat Club, we have made our recommendations. The final invites will be out soon" states promoter Jeff Osborne. "The field will be awesome if it holds. We have nearly 20 solid applicants. There are a lot of good reputations too that are stepping up – we have always hoped these events will take grappling to a new level in the United States, and with this level of competition, we
feel we are heading in the right direction"
continues HnS guru Osborne.

Look for the complete lineup to be announced closer to the August 19th HOOKnSHOOT TRIUMPH event.

"We have tournaments in all the other weight classes, like last year. The best way to be considered is to send a tape for review" states Osborne. HOOKnSHOOT is now taking tapes for the following three tournaments:

SEPTEMBER 16th, 2000 – 88-98.9 KG Class (Date changed from 9/23)
NOVEMBER 11th, 2000 – 77-87.9 KG Class
DECEMBER 2000 – 99 KG & up Class
