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:
