The Arizona Jiu-Jitsu tournament season kicks off on the 3rd and 4th of March with the 7th Arizona International Open, and it’s already open for sign-ups.
Last year the event sold out and over 700 competitors turned up to participate in the competition, which included a 16-man black belt open class paying out $3,000 in prizes. Roberto “Tussa” Alencar (Gracie Barra NM) defeated four opponents, including Nova União standout Bruno Bastos in the final (check out the article about it here) .
In 2012 the pro division with cash prizes is back, and it’s a great warmup for the April 1 Jiu-Jitsu Pan. To get in on the action and pay the lower, pre-registration rate, sign up by February 27 by clicking here.
