In 2010, Team Lloyd Irvin made history… becoming the only Non-Brazilian team to make it into the Overall Standings at the IBJJF World Championships. This is not local NAGAs or Grapplers Quest that put “World Championship” into their tournament names but the REAL World Championships of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
The caption above is fact… Team Lloyd Irvin has produced more World and Grand Slam Medals than every other Maryland school combined and Crazy 88 has produced more World and Grand Slam Medals than every other Baltimore area school combined.
Don’t take our word for it, see the results for yourself (please make sure you look through the list, you’ll discover that reality and hype are two different things. You’ll see where a lot “big name” teams stack up)…
