Gracie Barra’s motto is “Jiu-Jitsu for Everyone”.
Under that philosophy, the GB Nationals Compnet is shaping up to be the team’s annual gathering.
Scheduled for October 20 in Irvine, California, the event is much more than a tournament.
“We expect up to 800 competitors of all ages. From five years old to 70 years old, we will have our students giving their best on the mats”, says Compnet director Nelson Monteiro.
The fifth-degree black belt puts the whole thing into perspective: “Not many teams are able to have a event this size, with over 700 athletes from schools all over the USA”.
Registration is open and should go on until the week of the tournament.
