A new Jiu-Jitsu event looks set to gather the cream of the gentle-art crop in Long Beach at the end of 2012.
The maiden installment of the IBJJ Pro League will go down December 8 in the famed California State University Long Beach pyramid-shaped gymnasium.
The tournament is exclusively for black belts and will pay out a total $15,000 in prize money to the champions.
According to the organizers, to start there will be three weight groups; however, that number may see a hike, as may the prize money.
Each division will include eight world-elite Jiu-Jitsu athletes.
