The state championships ( Campeonato Estadual de JiuJitsu) are always one of my favorite events it comes up about a month before the Worlds. This tournament is often used by top guys making come backs and new up and comers sharpening their swords. This year was no exception. We saw some hot action at this event. Nothing like watching the hot shots plow through a division submitting guys. We saw the return of Rafael "Gordinho" Correa, Gordo`s little brother. This was one event he had not won ever so he jumped in to fight.
