Dante Leon – Canada’s Next Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Star
Video and Interview by Josh Sequeira
Reigning from Harrow, Ontario, 18 year old Dante Leon is in line to be Canada’s next star in BJJ.
The Ribeiro Jiu Jitsu product, who trains at the Detroit Jiu Jitsu Academy, has already won 2 World Championships and 4 Pan Am titles (he has picked up a total of 9 medals at the Worlds and Pan Ams since 2010).
He has been a man on fire since being promoted to purple belt early this summer. After witnessing his utter domination at the IBJJF Toronto Open, where he won double gold, we visited Dante in Detroit to interview the budding superstar.
Below is a video highlight of Dante in action at the Toronto Open in the absolute division, accompanied by our interview with him. Enjoy!
