Enzo's Fight Against Cancer Fund

Today

From Murilo:

Guys this is my friend Enzo, his father is a black belt instructor in Sao Paulo, his name is Renato Branco. Enzo has gone thru two surgeries to remove a tumor from his cerebelum and has just finished his tenth session of chemotherapy. I am asking everybody that reads this to send my friend Enzo and his family some positive energy if you can. Thank you.
To try to help his family in Sao Paulo get thru this I am setting up some stuff to help them financially, we have a go fund me to send some financial aid to my friend, any small amount will be of help, I’m raffling off prizes like a Scramble Gear package with a Gi, a rashguard and spats, a one hour Private Class with me, and a free month of training at Unity. This seemed a good way to get them some assistance quickly.

Thank you very much.
-Murilo Santana

Apr 10, 2017

From the Article: https://www.flograppling.com/articles/5063709-unity-jiu-jitsu-team-score-major-colored-belt-success-in-new-york

“Murilo Santana’s Unity Jiu-Jitsu school in New York has been producing some real monsters, and the results speak for themselves.

Athletes representing Unity Jiu-Jitsu took gold in the absolute divisions at blue (male and female), purple and brown belt.

BLUE / Adult / Male / Open Class
1 – Scott D. Perry – Unity Jiu-jitsu
2 – Brian Richards – Unity Jiu-jitsu
3 – Deonte Simpkins – Alliance
3 – Justin Michael – Alliance International

BLUE / Adult / Female / Open Class
1 – Chloe Mcnally – Unity Jiu-jitsu
2 – Natalie Barczyk – Alliance
3 – Jessica Feliciano – Renzo Gracie Pennsylvania Academy
3 – Samantha Ryan McManus – Unity Jiu-jitsu

PURPLE / Adult / Male / Open Class
1 – Devhonte M. Johnson – Unity Jiu-jitsu
2 – Sebastian Rodriguez Williams – Unity Jiu-jitsu
3 – Damien Roberts – Soul Fighters BJJ Connecticut
3 – Italo Moura de Azevedo – PSLPB Cicero Costha

BROWN / Adult / Male / Open Class
1 – Rafael Babilonia Cristovão – Unity Jiu-jitsu
2 – Quentin E. Leahy – Renzo Gracie JJ
3 – Dante Leon – GF Team
3 – Fabian De Jesus Bolaños Camacho – RCBJJ-Costa Rica

In addition to the absolute gold medals Unity Jiu-Jitsu also took a further nine gold medals in blue and purple belt weight divisions, along with many second and third place medals across various belts and weight divisions.

BLUE / Adult / Male / Middle
1 – Scott D. Perry – Unity Jiu-jitsu

BLUE / Adult / Male / Super-Heavy
1 – Brian Richards – Unity Jiu-jitsu

BLUE / Adult / Female / Heavy
1 – Chloe Mcnally – Unity Jiu-jitsu

PURPLE / Adult / Male / Light-Feather
1 – Edwin Ocasio – Unity Jiu-jitsu

PURPLE / Adult / Male / Feather

PURPLE / Adult / Male / Light
1 – Italo Moura de Azevedo – PSLPB Cicero Costha

PURPLE / Adult / Male / Medium-Heavy
1 – Abdurahmanhaji Murtazaliev – Unity Jiu-jitsu

PURPLE / Adult / Male / Super-Heavy
1 – Devhonte M. Johnson – Unity Jiu-jitsu

BROWN / Adult / Male / Ultra-Heavy
1 – Rafael Babilonia Cristovão – Unity Jiu-jitsu

Jonas Andrade and Italo Moura are both listed as PSLPB Cicero Costha, but the two teams enjoy an exchange program of sorts with athletes from the Sao Paulo-based gym often spending extensive periods of time training at Santana’s New York team, so they have been included on this list.

Unity Jiu-Jitsu took second place overall in the team standings, behind only Alliance. The team sent 36 athletes total from white to black belt to compete in the competition.

Academy Standings – 2017 New York Spring IO
1 – Alliance – 236
2 – Unity Jiu-jitsu – 146
3 – Renzo Gracie Academy – 107”
