The Ruotolo Bros Will Compete Gi and No-Gi in 2022

Dec 20, 2021

  • Twin brothers Tye Ruotolo and Kade Ruotolo received their black belts from Andre Galvao on December 13, 2022, just days after they met in the finals of the brown belt lightweight division. 
  • Galvao promoted them to black belt at Atos HQ in San Diego in front of all their teammates and family, and the brothers revealed that they have big plans for next year. 
  • “I’m super motivated to go do Worlds, do everything at black belt, I’m so psyched,” said Tye, who took the gold at Worlds. 
  • Brother Kade followed up and said they plan to compete in most major tournaments next year: “Right before Worlds I was kind of losing my fire for the gi. [Galvao] was pushing us through Worlds, crazy how he always knows what’s right. It kind of fully revamped our love for the gi again, and now next year we have Worlds again in six months– Europeans, Pans, everything before that– and ADCC!”
