I'm looking to set up a chess tournament w/ BJJ and MMA guys for this April...

    Thu, 2008-02-07 08:05 — The Bishop

    Hey folks,
    I have a Hip-Hop Chess Federation event planned for this April. Last time it focused on rappers. This time it focuses on MMA and BJJ.

    RZA, Josh Waitzkin, Jeff Monson, Ralek Gracie and some others are already slated to come out. But I need to make this a solid 8 man tournament...If you know any MMA or BJJ guys who play, let me know.

    BTW, I don't need them to be experts. All the guys who come out come for casual play. We throw the tournaments to inspire youth to come out and learn about thinsg to improve their lives.

    Here is some footage from the last one:

    Thanks dudes,

    Where is this going to be? I may not be good enough at Chess anymore to play, and certainly not with Josh Waitzkin, but can I get in on watching?

    Oh I do not know, maybe Waitzkin might taken to jail in the parking lot if he beats me. There are alot of unsolved crimes he could be questioned on. :rolleyes: I am sure that he will understand me after a little pregame conversation. :cool:
