What do Boston, USA, and Montreal, Canada, have in common besides their lively youth and superb ice hockey teams?
Starting in August, competition Jiu-Jitsu.
For the first time, the IBJJF will be taking its excellence in holding tournaments to two of the most classic and richest cities in North America, which will now have the opportunity to finally find out who their greatest gentle art representatives are.
Both the August 27 Boston Open and the September 4 Montreal Open will feature pre-event refereeing clinics to enrich the knowledge of teachers, practitioners and referees alike.
To take part in the first IBJJF tournament to grace one of the USA’s oldest cities, you’d better step up the pace. Sign-ups for the Boston Open end August 20, and among the mat wizards on the roster are names like Renan Borges and Bernardo Pitel. Further information here.
If you don’t want to miss out on the maiden IBJJF event on Canadian turf, you only have this week to get in on sign-ups at a slashed rate. The deadline to sign up for the Montreal Open paying the full price is August 27.
