GB’s Compnet 6 Tournament

Gracie Barra’s sixth Compnet tournament was recently held in New Orleans, and it was a smashing success. Competitors from Texas, South Carolina, Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, and Mississippi participated in the event. “Compnet 6” was Gracie Barra’s first tournament outside of California.

As GB members competed in their matches and made new friends in between, the excitement of the day grew. It became clear to the organizers that this was going to have to be a yearly event. Rafael Ellwanger, who helped organize Compnet 6, was pleased with the results. “The turnout was so great, the Southeast will now have a Compnet event in New Orleans, a week before Halloween, every year,” he says.
