Last weekend, California State University Dominguez Hills hosted the American Nationals, where some of the most talented competitors in the USA took to the mats for Gi and No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu contests and Caio Terra was again crowned absolute champion, in the gi. (Check out the official IBJJF results here.)
The Jiu-Jitsu road show doesn’t stop there, and next up are the October 1 No-Gi Pan in New York and the London Open in London on the same day. It’s worth remembering that the 1st of October is Helio Gracie’s birthday, so doing some gi-clad combat is a great way to pay tribute to the late Grandmaster.
If you haven’t signed up to compete tomorrow, the next major event on the calendar is the October 22 Miami Open. But you’d better hurry, as tomorrow is the deadline to pay the early-registration, reduced rate.
