2006 ABKJ Tri-State Championship
Submission Wrestling and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
Parkersburg, West Virginia
The biggest submission wrestling and Brazilian jiu-jitsu tournament in West Virginia returns on May 6, 2006. We look for this to be our biggest tournament yet and we our making the proper steps to make this our best tournament as well.
Each tournament continues to grow in size and the competitors continue to enjoy the fast pace and competitor friendly atmosphere. In hopes to bring even better opportunities to each competitor, we are offering a few more events and ideas for each competitor to take part in as well.
There will be a free seminar (for everyone who competes) the night before the tournament given by BJJ black belt, Marcello Monteiro www.bjjcoach.com  It will also be available for those who don't compete at a very low fee and it's definitely not something you would want to miss. Marcello is a great coach with a list of great credentials.
We are also looking to have a few superfights (gi and no gi).
Joao "Pitbull" Herdy (Team Monteiro) vs. TBA (looking for a competitor 155 or under)
We still have room for additional vendors and sponsors. If interested, please call or email the event promoter, Butch Hiles, who's contact information will be at the bottom of this press release.
This event will also be the second qualifying tournament for the "Battle of the Champions" that will be featured at the end of the year.
