Alexander Trans is one of the strongest Europeans in BJJ of all time. An European and Pan-American champion, he was a two-time runner-up in BJJ Worlds. He had the chance to make history in 2015, when he was the first non-Brazilian to qualify for a male black belt absolute final. But an injury took him out of the final.
The Dane is a black belt under Leozinho Vieira. Recently he moved to Brazil and began training with GFTeam, the same team as Rodolfo Vieira. We visited the gym, in Rio de Janeiro, and Trans showed us a leg lock starting from the half-guard. Check it out.
