Gold and Bronze From IBJJF No-Gi World Championships


The Cellar Gym/CheckMat Minneapolis is returning home from the IBJJF No-Gi World Championships with Gold and Bronze! This was the very first time The Cellar had sent a team to compete at IBJJF Worlds and it was a great success!

Coach Karen Antunes Borges won her 4th IBJJF World Title by winning Gold in the Women’s Black Belt Lightweight Division. She won her first match by triangle and won her second match by guillotine!


Kevin Skadsheim won Bronze in the Men’s Masters 1, Blue Belt, Medium-Heavy Division! Kevin won his first two matches to make it to the medal rounds. He lost his match in the semi-finals by 2 points. Kevin is the first BJJ student from The Cellar to medal at IBJJF Worlds, Congratulations Kevin!


In the Men’s Black Belt, Featherweight Division, Coach Mayko Araujo Borges lost his match against the VERY tough Vitor Peres. The final score was 2-2, but Mayko lost by an advantage point. As bad luck would have it, both Mayko and Ethan had to compete at the exact same time.

Ethan Baumann won his first match of the Men’s Blue Belt, Middleweight Division, but lost his second match by armbar.
