September 4 in West Virginia: State BJJ and Submission Grappling Championships
On Saturday, September 4, 2010 Charleston, West Virginia will be holding the official “West Virginia Games” once again, and we expect this year to be much bigger than the last. This will be a huge two day event on Magic Island, which is located on the Kanawha river in the capital of West Virginia. The “West Virginia Games” will feature various sports including volleyball, beach wrestling, boxing, power lifting, 5k run, rack & field, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Submission Wrestling, and much more. There will also be many kid friendly events and rides to keep the whole family entertained.
This is an important event for our state and we are looking for a lot of competitors to help our sport and martial art grow in West Virginia. The exposure will be very big throughout the state and we expect many local state officials to be there. All local competitors will benefit from the media attention and all out of state competitors are guaranteed to have fun, get good competition, and be part of a larger event that will be fun for the whole family.
This is the official state championships for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Submission Wrestling (No Gi Grappling) and, as always, we will have a double elimination format allowing each competitor the most opportunity to compete as possible. There will also be various absolute divisions available, allowing each competitor a chance to compete way more than they usually can at any similar tournament.
There will be children’s, teens, women’s, and men’s divisions and the weight classes for both gi and no gi.
