The 2010 Asian Open Championship, by IBJJF, takes place next September 11th-12th, in Tokyo, Japan.
And schools all over the continent are already getting ready for it.
GMA member school Purebred Guam, under Stephen Roberto, is one of them.
And they have a good history at the Asian Open.
In 2008, Purebred Jiu Jitsu Guam brought home eleven gold, four silver and two bronze medals along with a 2nd place novice team title and 3rd place overall team title.
Roberto tells us his plans for 2010: “We will be bringing 32 athletes this year. They are training hard and hope to better their past efforts in the Asian leg of the big five IBJJF tournaments. Mike fowler and JT Torres will be helping the team prepare for this tournament.”
