Long Island BJJ will be having our first in school tournament on Saturday March 26th at 11:00AM. There will be multiple weight divisions, skill divisions, as well as gi and no-gi divisions. This will be a great way for you guys to get ready for the upcoming Grapplers Quest Tournament in April. Sign up for the in school tournament at the sign in sheet at the gym so we have an idea about how many competitors we have doing it.
Congratulations to David Hubbard for winning the US Grappling Tournament on March 5th 2011.
