It’s that time of year again – registration for the 2009 Diamond State Games BJJ and Submission Grappling tournament opened today. This should be a big one. There are a few firsts – the new no gi skill levels we announced yesterday to mixed reactions, this is our first 2-day event, and we have eliminated the kids and teens divisions.
Instead of have small divisions for kids and teens in our standard events that are impossible to bracket in a way that makes everyone happy we’ve decided to focus on the Jr. Championships events, which are for kids and teens only. We’ll be opening registration for the next kids event in Richmond on 8/15/09 soon.
