For anyone who thinks the Gi Jiu-Jitsu year ends after the Worlds, think again: there are five more events coming up to spice up the IBJJF calendar. The next in line are the International Masters and the Rio International Open, in Rio de Janeiro from July 21 to 24.

Then there’s the Las Vegas International Open (find out more here) , on August 13 in Nevada, after which, on the 21st, comes the Chicago Open, about which there was some doubt as to whether it would in fact take place, due to legislation changes in Illinois (find out more here).

Still in the month of August, the 27th marks the Boston Open (find out more here), in Boston, Massachussets.

Don’t miss out on the excitement. Get out your gi and participate; sign-ups are already underway! Check out the  IBJJF website for further information.
