Brian Carlsen had already established himself as a top Brown Belt competitor on the international BJJ tournament scene but now he’s been promoted to Black Belt and is ready to advance his career and winning ways when he competes in the Revgear World Open – Kansas City Black Belt Superfight on September 27th.
Over the past 12 months Brian has captured gold winning multiple IBJJF events as well as tournaments in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In June of 2014 Brian was invited to compete in Dream’s Baddest Brown Belt $1,000.00 Challenge which put 32 top level Brown Belt competitors against each other in a submission only, single elimination tournament event. After the smoke cleared Brian Carlsen emerged the victor after competing in 4 matches, one of which was a 50 minute battle.
Brian is currently the head instructor at Easton BJJ in Boulder, CO where he grew up. When Brian isn’t on the mat he’s enjoying the great Colorado outdoors and pursuing a career in research technology.
Brian takes on a tough St. Louis Black Belt Nick Sanders from team Nova Uniao at Revgear World Open – Kansas City.
