Though he's yet to claim any major titles yet, ZR Team's Paul Pietsch is definitely a purple belt to keep an eye on at the 2019 World Championships.

Hailing from Vienna, Austria, Pietsch has been training on and off at the ZR team HQ with the help of a scholarship.  The 20-year-old only received his purple belt a few months ago, but was seen giving season back belts fits with his lapel guard and explosive movements.
