Paige had an outstandingly dominant performance at 2021 NoGi Worlds. Placing gold in her division (purple belt heavy), and absolute division. Throughout the competition, Paige had a total of 7 matches. Six of which she finished with submissions. All the while not having a single point scored on her. An impressive feat to say the least. However not surprising at all to her training partners and coaches at Legion.
Paige is a dedicated student at Legion, training multiple times a day. As well as teaching Legion’s kids program, training and guiding our future world champions.
Now ranked #1 in the world as a nogi purple belt grappler, Paige has big goals set for the future, setting her sights on ADCC trials.

Edward Lucero, more commonly known as Juno, is another of Legions avid competitors. After winning IBJJF American Nationals, Juno placed Silver in his division (brown belt feather) at NoGi Worlds. Juno is definitely one to watch for in the competition scene. Always putting on an exciting show of technique and skill.
Only twenty years old, Juno is already an experienced competitor. We’re expecting big things from Juno and his future in competing.
Breylor Grout aka JR, after winning NoGi Pans & American Nationals, made a run at NoGi Worlds where he won bronze in a talent-packed brown belt division. JR has an exciting submission-based grappling game, and is always exciting to watch.
JR has been primarily focusing on his NoGi game, also setting his sights on ADCC trials in the near future.
JR’s well-rounded grappling style & modern leg lock game makes him a dangerous opponent, and he is looking forward to showcasing more of his jiujitsu on the worlds biggest stages.
