The sport Jiu-Jitsu panorama for September is such that even the coolest-tempered practitioners will get pumped up with adrenaline. This Saturday Toronto BJJ academy will be defending its title of best team at Canada’s Montreal Open. Then on the 8th and 9th, next weekend, there’ll be the Floripa Open, where the mat wizards from Brazil’s South will gather for some healthy competition; while Carson, California, will be the destination for stalwart gentle artists from across the United States who will compete at the American Nationals.

On the 15th the gi-wearing road show will set up shop in Atlanta, for the new IBJJF-promoted Atlanta International Open.

And the following weekend, on the 22nd, Rio de Janeiro will be the stage for the country’s top teams to lock horns to determine which academy will reign supreme at the Brazilian Team Nationals. And to wrap up the month, the No-Gi Pan will take the excitement to New York on the 29th.

So get out your gi, sign up, and go to town at an IBJJF competition.
