Spyder returns with its first event of 2020 in the "The Road To Black"! The main event is an eight-man, 65kg and under bracket, featuring purple and brown belts, but we're also extremely excited about the special superfight that pits elite wrestler vs jiu-jitsu black belt.
Squaring off in this seven-minute, single-round match is none other than Kira Sung from the Korean national jiu-jitsu team and Jiae Choi – a member from the Korean National wrestling squad.
- Kira Sung - Korean jiu-jitsu national team, 2018 Asian Games Jiu-Jitsu 1st place (-62kg)
- Jiae Choi - Korean wrestling national team, 2019 National Champion (-62kg)
The format is a single seven-minute round; pulling guard results in -three points and the only leglocks allowed are straight ankle locks.
This wouldn't be the first time Spyder has played with the concept of pitting the two grappling arts against one another, they ran a similar super-fight last summer featuring Byungmin Gong (Korean National Wrestler) vs Inseong Jang (Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt).
