WHAT TIME: Doors open at 8:30 AM

The Jiu-Jitsu Revolution Team Kids & Adults Men’s and Women (White and Blue Belts) Tournament is a Gi-Only tournament open to all BJJ Revolution Team Affiliated schools (BJJ Revolution Team Affiliates/Members Only).

The tournament will help BJJ Revolution Team students to learn how to compete and gain experience in order to prepare students for bigger competitions, both in Jiu-Jitsu and in life. What builds emotional stability and maturity is experiencing the ability to face adversity and challenge with an open mind and fighting spirit.

The future of our nation lays on the courage, confidence and determination of its people. Children and Adults who build the capacity to face challenge with comfort, even when the odds are high, will become adults who are able to persevere in a challenging world.

Every match brings an opportunity for all who are participating to gain experience and learn something. Yes, we all strive to win but our goal is to embrace the opportunity to grow and learn.

The philosophy we want to spread in that of friendship, camaraderie and learning. Our tournament is designed to be fun, laid back and relaxed.
