Kaynan Duarte won double gold at the 2023 IBJJF European Championship held at the Institute of Judo in Paris.
During the tournament, the Atos athlete won all seven fights via submission taking back home both the super-heavyweight and absolute black belt divisions.
He used chokes to defeat his opponents as his main weapon. Five necks were squeezed by Kaynan and two opponents were submitted via armbar throughout the competition.
Luis Fernando de Oliveira felt the champion’s pressure the most, as he was submitted at both weight and open weight by the Atos representative.
Same thing happened with everyone who clashed against Kaynan in the absolute.
From the back or from the mount, the four rivals were strangled.
In the absolute final match, the champion was unaware of Rider Zuchi. About a minute into the duel, Kaynan swept, took the back, and submitted with a rear naked choke.
The IBJJF Europeans is now confirmed as Kaynan’s first absolute title.
