Baret Yoshida joins the elite group of ADCC Hall of Fame inductees. Hawaiian-born submission grappler and MMA fighter is a BJJ black belt under the Egan Inoue.
An ADCC mainstay has competed in 10 World Championship events. Despite not winning any gold medals he is two times runner-up that was bested by Royler Gracie and Leonardo Vieira back in 2001 and 2003 respectfully. He placed 3rd in 2007 by defeating Tetsu Suzuko.
Outside the ADCC Yoshida found success in a No-Gi competition circuit as he’s two times World Jiu Jitsu No-Gi champion and also both F2W Pro Bantamweight and Bantamweight No-Gi champion. He also competed at EBI, ZST, DEEP, and Metamoris events.
Yoshida also tested himself in Mixed Martial Arts and stacked up 6 – 6 record with 5 wins coming by the way of submission. He fought in his native Hawaii, USA, and Japan, where he was Shooto regular. Despite his mixed record is noteworthy that he competed mainly against then-current big names as Jeff Curran and Masahiro Oishii.
