Thanks to everyone for showing that the U.S. Open really is "America's Favorite Tournament." We've had record registration this year!
The Brackets are now up http://usopenbjj.com/Brackets.html 
If you have any questions please email us.
In order for us to run a smooth and enjoyable tournament, we need all of our competitors to become aware of a few things.

The tournament will take place October 18 &19 at the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium in Santa Cruz, CA.
In order to help us process all the competitors as efficiently as possible, we urge all of you to check-in on Friday from 12 pm to 10 pm at our academy. Click HERE for a map of the academy.
Bring a valid ID with you.
Also, please note that we will open competitor check-in at 7:30 am, a half an hour earlier than what we previously stated on our website, on both days of the event. We highly recommend for those in the White Belt Rooster through Middle Weight Divisions that you show up at 7:30 am on Saturday so that you don't risk DQ by failure to appear on the mat. The same goes for Blue Belts on Sunday.
