Last weekends results from IBJJF Europeans Championship

Last weekend Arte Suave had ten competitors at the IBJJF Europeans Championship, in Paris. This is probably the most prestigious BJJ championship in Europe and we are proud of everyone who participated and put it all on the line.

Several of our athletes made it to the quarter finals in hard-contested divisions, but unfortunately didn’t make it to the finals.

All though it did not go everyone’s way, Mads Hørsholt won a hard-fought bronze medal, in the brownbelt, heavyweight adult division.

Our coach, Joachim Christensen faced four tough opponents, one of whom previously won the world championship in the same category. However, Joachim managed to beat all his opposition, thus achieving the gold medal in the blackbelt, ultra heavyweight master 4 division!

Big congratulations on all the wins, and on all the great performances!

Here are the results for everyone who got to the podium:


Male / Adult / Brown / Heavy (94.30kg)

3. 🥉 Mads Kasper Hoersholt

Male / Master 4 / Black / Ultra-Heavy

1. 🥇 Joachim Tomas Christensen


Deadlift workshop with Marinela successfully completed!

On the 20th of January, we conducted the first of many workshops at our performance gym, this time focusing on the deadlift.
It was great to see all of the participants and their enthusiasm for the workshop. A big thank you to Marinela for organizing the workshop and for her excellent instruction.
Marinela is open to your suggestions for future gym workshop themes.
