Está confirmado o evento Europeu de JJ Esportivo, será nos dias 14 e 15 de Dezembro, onde teremos no Sábado o Europeu de Kimono e no Domingo o Europeu sem Kimono ( Submission). Em breve mais detalhes do evento.
Exciting weekend in combat sports but one event that might be overlooked is the US Open of BJJ in Santa Cruz. This is the 18 year making it the longest continually run Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournament in the United States. It largely showcases northern California talent (which is deep) and they are offering a free webcast. Sunday will especially be worth checking out as some good black belt matches will be taking place:
I love the rules set and the way this tournament is run. I'm also managing the women's division so I'd love to see a big turn out for the ladies (I know there is a lot of up and coming talent in NorCal especially). If you missed the pre-registration use the code "OTM" or "worlds13" to get a 15% discount. See you on the mat!

In 2004 was the East Bay Judo Institute Shido, I had brought my video camera along to record my friends Dave Camarillo and Jose Bencosme. They put on a show, as expected, even fighting each other in the finals (for the record Jose won, though Dave claimed the mat was slippery :)
Just a quick note of condolences for the Alliance Team in Atlanta for the loss of Jim McPherson, passed away just shy of his 62 birthday after a yearlong battle with colon cancer, surrounded and comforted by loved ones.
