The Ueno Brothers: Brazilian-Japanese Twins Close Out 2019 IBJJF Europeans

A pair of Brazilian-Japanese twins by the name of Hiago Ueno (above left) and Thiago Ueno (above right) closed out the final of the roosterweight division at the 2019 IBJJF European Championships. 

The 21-year-old brothers hail from the city of Yokkaichi, near Nagoya in Japan, some 200+ miles from Tokyo. 

Training out of Tree Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, they've dominated everything on the Asian circuit, winning the Asian Open, Bull Terrier Cup and UAEJJF Grand Slam Tokyo. 

And now they took their winning ways to the IBJJF European Championships, their first as purple belts. 

Later this year they plan to compete at both the UAEJJF Abu Dhabi World Pro and the IBJJF World Championships. 

Keep an eye out for them this year to see if they can repeat the feat! 

Watch their semifinals below...
