For 2018, there are often resolutions, and then there are things which have already been resolved. Such was the case in the Atlanta IBJJF Internationals where our own famed trio, Professors Rodrigo, Rivaldo Jr, and Thiago Macedo were determined that there was nothing to be mined but gold.

And mined it they did. Through long and hard-fought battles, the team made another piece of history, all medaling gold simultaneously.

Congratulations to all three!
