On Sunday April 11, 2010, we will be holding a grappling tournament in Hampton, VA at Bethel High School! We welcome all styles to come and participate. There will be both gi and nogi events for kids, teens, and adults.

****In the entry form, it does not specify gi or nogi for grappling, please do not worry. There will be BOTH.****
The tournament is headed by Montez Dennis who has been running martial arts tournaments for the past 20 years. This is the first year he will be adding grappling to the tournament, and he asked us to run that portion of it. Other divisions include self-defense, kata, weapons, sparring, and breaking. We've been participating, judging, and helping him with tournaments for the past few years and it is always a great time. Here's a video I made from his last tournament our school entered.
I do not expect it to be a very large tournament, but we should have a fair amount of people. If you are interested or have any questions feel free to contact me here, or e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks a lot, hope to see some of you there!
