U.S. Open Tournament News Travelling to Santa Cruz

    Mon, 2006-09-11 22:08 — Claudio Franca

    Dear Alan,

    Many of you have asked us what exactly the Brown and Black Belt Team Challenge is. In a nutshell, you can think of each team as an individual competitor in the brackets. However, in order for a team to advance to the next round, 2 out of 3 of the team members must win their matches. What makes the team challenge exciting is that individual competitor's victories impact more than just that competitor--the entire team's fate rests on the outcome of an individual competitor's match. Also, as happened last year, which team advances to the next round often comes down to a tie-breaking match, and that makes it really fun for the fans to watch. We inaugerated the Brown and Black Belt Team Challenge last year at U.S. Open 10 as a way of making the event more exciting for spectators to watch. Why don't you drop by the U.S. Open myspace page myspace. com/usopenbjj and tell us what you think of the event, especially if you had a chance to witness last year's challenge with Team Saulo Ribeiro coming out on top.
