The IBJJF ventured back to New York this weekend for another showcase of big names in the grappling industry. Athletes from not only the east coast, but other areas of the country came out to represent for their academies and put on some great contests.

Team Lloyd Irvin had a strong outing as they took home the team title. They were led by multiple competitors who reached the finals taking either gold or silver in various weight classes.

Shane Jamil Hill-Taylor continued his run up the black belt rankings as he walked out of New York with a featherweight title to add to his resume. He submitted every opponent on the way to the title and walked out with $4,000 in winnings. He was joined by his teammate Aarae Alexander who earned gold in the female featherweight division; defeating Kristina Barlaan of the Caio Terra Association.

Keenan Cornelius of Atos built upon his successful 2017 as he earned the gold medal in the heavyweight division where he defeated Tim Spriggs in the final by the score of 9-0.
