Today was the last tournament to be held at Kaobon this year already having done two KOTM events the third was sure to be even better. As Marcelo is set to return to Brazil after his world tour for winter he would of been happy with the outcome of the event alot of gold medals being placed around Kaobon Luta Livre fighters.
The event was quieter than previous competitions however, the talent on show was much improved and it was evident in the rolls from flying armbars to a crazy amount of heel hooks which emphasised how well Marcelo teaches his students as Luta Livre is known for its foot locks. Thanks to everybody who competed keep training hard and see you at the next competition.

Today was another day for Luta Livre to expand its family as Marcelo Brigadeiro hosted another grading at Team Kaobon, before leaving on his tour of the world and returning home to Brazil. Another historic day was made adding to the rise of Luta Livre which has always been in the shadows of Brazilian Ju Jitsu however, it is becoming more and more popular amongst martial artists and Brazilian Ju Jitsu players have a lot more respect for the martial art these days.
The grading consisted of rolls using just technique and then Marcelo talked about the history of Luta Livre and Marcelo's story of how his life has been affected by Luta Livre.
A lot of different ability was graded ranging from white belts all the way to the highest at purple. Grading was scored on ability, attitude and commitment and knowledge.
Marcelo said he was proud of everybody involved and wanted to keep spreading the word of Luta Livre, stating everybody who is graded has a role to play in spreading the word. Well done to everybody who involved keep training hard and showing what Luta Livre is all about.
