Johnatha Alves and Tainan Dalpra of AOJ Shine at Dallas Open

Mar 9, 2021

Two of Art Of Jiu-Jitsu's finest had strong openings to their 2021 gi seasons in talent-filled divisions at the Dallas Open. 

No.1-ranked lightweight Johnatha Alves submitted his first opponent in the lightweight division before beating Johnny Tama in the final. And Tainan Dalpra made his black belt debut in similar fashion. He won via submission in his first and final matches, and beat veteran Michael Liera Jr. on points in the semi-final.

The two AOJ athletes closed out in the open weight final. In that bracket, Alves also collected a win over Liera.
