ADCC Italian Championships 2008

Report and Results

by ADCC Italy



Unbelievable success for the second year of activity in Italy of the ADCC: a successful calendar of events

was set up by Filippo Leone, ADCC Italy President, and his staff.


The ADCC Italy National Championship has been organized through 6 exciting tournaments in different

towns across Italy: the best Italian teams and athletes took part and competed to enter in the classements

with the goal to be the best and to win the prestigious title of ADCC National Champion. The good level of

organization and refereeing has been crucial to obtain a great exposure in the Martial Arts and Combat Sport

Italian community, increasing the number of athletes and teams who reached the ADCC Italy Federation.

Last June the best Submission Fighters in Italy were crowned and the National ADCC Italy Team was formed

to compete at the next ADCC Europe Trial in January 2009 and trying to reach the prestigious ADCC World

Finals 2009.


During the season ADCC Italy has organized also two top international events: the ADCC Open Italy 2007

in Massa Carrara and the ADCC Italy Submission Fighting Iron Men in Livorno; exciting fights, money

prizes for winners, great exposure and advertising on the most important international web magazines and

“It was an exciting and successful year – stated Filippo Leone – the level of Italian fighters is increasing

and the possibilities we offer to our fighters to fight continuously and against international athletes will help

in this direction. ADCC is really growing as in Italy as in Europe through a hard work: personally, I hope our

athletes will make a good job in the next ADCC continental top events, the 1st ADCC Submission Fighting

European Championship and the ADCC Europe trials…my goal is to take some Italian athletes to the

Worlds finals, and we are working hard to make this happen, I am used to work hard to realise my dreams

and this is what I am going to do!”


Thanks to all ADCC Italy staff and to all fighters, trainers and promoters who support our work with great

heart and passion, making our Federation and our sport everyday bigger!


At the end of September 2008 the new season will have the great opening with the National Trials to select

the athletes who will compete at the 1st ADCC Submission Fighting European Championship representing

the national Team ADCC Italy. Stay tuned…..
