The very First Pan-American Jiu-Jitsu Championship took place in 1995 in Irvine, CA. This 1st Place Gold Medal shown above was awarded to Bob Bass for his win over Marcio Feitosa (previously undefeated Black Belt from Brazil.) Bob was a Brown Belt at the time and was awarded his Black Belt from Rigan Machado right after for his notable win!
