He climbed the ranks stacking wins in the sport’s most prestigious tournaments, including the IBJJF World Championships, Pan American Championships, and the European Open.
Rising grappling sensation Dante Leon is a black belt from the GF Team. He has an impressive competition resume, including the 2016 IBJJF World No-Gi Championship at brown belt.
