Carlson Gracie New Zealand is hosting an in-house tournament.
This will be held on Tuesday 28th July. The first fight will begin at 18 30 at the gym. So make sure that if you are competing you are there by 18 00.
There will be four categories:
Men (White belt)
Men (Blue/Purple belt)
Women (All levels)
Open category (All levels and sexes)
All fights will be in the Gi, and follow standard IBJJF rules for each belt level.
Tournament will work on a knock-out format, with the winner of each fight proceeding to the next round.
Make sure you put your name down on the list (in the gym) with your weight and belt level.
We will put together a draw and release this on the day of the tournament.
In addition the medals, there will be prizes for the winner of each category. Trophy will go to the overall tournament champion.
We would like to suggest that it is mandatory for people to attend this, and that we would hope that everyone would sign up to compete. Its a good opportunity to experience a tournament type setting while still being in a friendly environment.
The gym will also be open to anyone who is not currently a member, who would like to show up to watch. We will endeavour to accommodate people as best we can. So get your friends and family to come down and take a look.
If you have any questions let us know.
