Purple Belt Kaynan Casemiro Duarte Wins Double Gold At IBJJF 2017 Pans
The 18-year-old Brazilian -- who won double gold at IBJJF No-Gi Worlds last November and won the ADCC South American Trials in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil last month -- proved he has skills in the gi, too.
Duarte, coached from the sidelines by Atos co-founder Andre Galvao and the San Diego crew, won a total of nine matches: five in his weight category, and four in the absolute.
