As a few of our members have expressed an interest in competing recently I thought I’d put together a list of the competitions that I’ll be going to this summer. Please see below:
Saturday 9th June | Bournemouth BJJ Open
Saturday 23rd June (Gi) & Sunday 24th June (Nogi) | IBJJF British Nationals (Crystal Palace, London)
Saturday 15th July | Brighton BJJ Open
Sunday 5th August | Surrey Open BJJ (Guildford, Surrey)
Wednesday 22nd August – Saturday 25th August | IBJJF World Masters (Las Vegas, USA)
If anyone would like to join you would be more than welcome to come along, either to compete or just to see what they’re all about and support. If you think competing is something you’d like to give a go please let one of the members of staff know before you enter, especially if you are a white belt or have never competed before.
We’d like to stress that there’s absolutely no expectation for our members to compete – this is just an option to hopefully make it easier to coordinate logistics etc. That being said it should be fun and I always feel it to be a valuable learning experience whatever the outcome.
