Blog: Worlds day 1

Share it

Here’s a secret.

Covering the first day of competition at the Jiu-Jitsu World Championship is perhaps the hardest task there is.

The ten match areas in the Long Beach pyramid don’t go a minute without action.

There are more than 600 athletes going at it, 99% of them unknown to this reporter.

How do you hone in on a single story? How do you give someone not in the gymnasium an inkling as to the excitement experienced by those living their passion for Jiu-Jitsu?

So with no great pretense, the GRACIEMAG at the Worlds Blog chose a simple route.

We picked 27 photos that sum up what transpired in Long Beach, as we see it.
