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).
