For the kids, the IBJJF Pan Kids Jiu-Jitsu Championship is a top competition. A gold medal at the tournament that mimics the prestigious Pan American Championship for adults is worth bragging about.
The registration is now open for the young divisions from mighty-mite 1 for those born in 2010 to teen 3 for those born in 1999. The ranks extend from gray belts to green belts and offer various weight and age groups for each child to find his or her equivalent opponents.
The entry fee is $77 for each competitor and registration will remain open until Feb. 7 or until capacity is reached.
Traveling to California is a must for this event as the venue is at California State University Dominguez Hills in Carson, CA.
