The 3rd IGJJF Open Championship

    Thu, 2005-06-16 02:32 — Rener Gracie

    The International Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Federation is proud to invite you and your team to compete in the 5-Star RATED 3rd Annual IGJJF Open Championship on August 13-14, 2005, at the brand new Lynwood High School Gym in Lynwood, Ca.

    This year we acquired many great sponsors and as a result, we were able to significantly lower the registration. We also increased the number of age and weight divisions and for the first time, this years tournament will be open to children as well.

    Nowadays, all of the BJJ tournaments utilize the same point system where victory is often determined by stalling after a point or an advantage is scored. We all know that this is NOT a convincing way to win or lose a match!

    When we train at our schools, we do not "score an advantage" and hold on to that position all night until it's time to go home. We practice going for submission! True effectiveness is the essence of our art and that is the reason most people practice it. However, because of BJJ rules, and the short time limits, competitors do not want to risk trying to accomplish submission and choose to "play safe."

    That makes the matches boring. Also because there is so much left to the referee's interpretation, there is a large margin for error. Everyone has a story to tell about how these tournaments often leave the competitors feeling discontent with the outcome of their matches.

    Because of the IGJJF`s objective rules we have the highest submission rate of ANY grappling tournament. Join us and experience the difference! Not to mention the fact that all adult first place winners qualify to WIN A FREE TRIP on this year's Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Carnival Cruise Seminar to Ensenada, Mexico, this includes 7 hours of jiu-jitsu instruction with Grand Master Helio Gracie.
