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.
Don’t forget to stop by the GRACIEMAG at the Worlds Blog to find out all the goings-on from the Long Beach pyramid.
