December 12 in California: BJJ Bay Area Open 2
The gi competition is scheduled for Saturday, December 12 and the no-gi competiton will be held on Sunday, December 13. All competitors will get to compete in at least two matches and receive a limited edition tournament t-shirt. Medals will be awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each division.
This is the second BJJ gi and no-gi tournament we are hosting. The proceeds for this tournament will be donated to the Berkeley High School wrestling team. Organizing this event last year allowed my wrestlers to compete in wrestling tournaments that we wouldn’t have otherwise been able to afford. The northern California BJJ community was very helpful and generous in supporting our team.
As with many high school programs today, our team is severely underfunded. The wrestling program is in dire need of funds for tournament registration fees as well as new wrestling mats. The high school refuses to provide me with this funding and therefore have been trying my best to take matters into my own hands.
