Super Spicy Omoplatas by Andris Brunovskis

The son of Latvian immigrants who found their way to America in the wake of World War II, Brunovskis was born in the summer of 1990. He found his way to the sport of Jiu Jitsu at the age of 16 in Cleveland. At first, he trained under the banner of Evolution Jiu Jitsu but eventually switched camps when he moved to Sacramento, California to train more seriously. It was here that he met and befriended another legend in the making, Keenan Cornelius.

While traveling between Ohio and California to compete, the young Brunovskis caught the attention of noted trainer Lloyd Irvin, who quickly invited Anrdris to join his competition team full time. Brunovskis accepted the offer, and eventually convinced Cornelius to join him under Irvin. Unfortunately Team Lloyd Irvin was dissolved shortly after in the wake of accusations of abuse within the team.

Now without a strong affiliation, Brunovski was forced to switch camps again, this time finding his way to one of the most respected competitors alive, André Galvão. At Atos, Brunovski received his black belt in 2014 and continued to compete heavily for the next three years, medaling in various national and international competitions.

Today he continues to compete and show off his unique personality while working closely with Keenan Cornelius at the academy he founded in 2019, Legion BJJ. Andris keeps fun at the forefront of his Jiu-Jitsu practice and can be found posing in a gi with his ally and assistant professor, a chihuahua named Lolo.

Andris Brunovskis's Best Fight of All Time

One of Brunovskis’ most interesting matches came very early in his career, in 2010. Brunovskis faced Christopher Broudnax in the No-Gi World Championship semifinals and defeated him in under a minute. This would be impressive on it’s own, but the first 30 seconds of the match saw Andris immediately invert and begin scooting backwards on his shoulders towards a visibly confused opponent. Just as Broudnax glanced at the referee in confusion, Brunoovskis lunged into a triangle setup and finished him in short order. This moment certainly helped propel Brunovskis to notoriety for his inventive style.

Who Did Andris Brunovskis Lose To?

Recently, in July of 2020, Brunovskis competed in Fight 2 Win 148 against Richar Nogueira. It was a competitive, back-and-forth outing where both competitors had good moments, but Nogueira was able to come away with the decision victory after time expired. Brunovski will no doubt use this as motivation for future competitions.
