    Brown and Black Belt Team Challenge—How does it work?

    In Brazil the Team Tournament is the event that draws the highest level of public excitement. Fans turn out in droves to help cheer their favorite teams to victory. The Claudio Franca Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Association is very pleased and excited to bring this event to American soil for the first time.

    For those of you unfamiliar with the Team Tournament format, here`s a look at how it will work at the U.S. Open.

    The tournament will be an open weight division challenge between the best brown and black belt competitors a team can offer. Each team will consist of 3 players, with a fourth registered as an alternate in the event that one of the competitors gets injured or becomes ill.

    The coach or team captain will assign a number, 1-3, to each of the team members in the presence of the referee and the event organizer. In the first round, ones will battle ones, two will battle twos, and threes will battle threes. The teams that secure two or more victories will advance to the next round and so on.

    The winning team will win a $3,000.00 prize. In the event that more than two teams participate in the challenge, the second place team will take home a $500.00 prize.

    Men`s Black Belt Superfights Confirmed!

    In addition to Megaton Dias vs. Eduardo Leitao, we have also confirmed Rickson Gracie Black Belt and 2003-2004 Champion Luis 'Limao' Heredia vs. Cia Paulista and Huntington Beach Jiu-Jitsu Club`s Waldomiro ‘Junior` Pirez.

    Anyone interested in setting up a black belt superfight should contact us at blackbelt@claudiofrancabjj.com or (831) 476-7650, or visit our website at www.claudiofrancabjj.com
