Dear BJJ Fans!
Only 3 weeks until competition day! We are all prepared for our January event and we are excited to see all the new competitors signing up. The early bird deadline ends on December 31st so if you haven’t signed up yet you only have a couple days left to save $20 on the registration fee. Don’t forget that only early bird registrants get a free Circle of Iron t-shirt. Otherwise you have to buy one at the event!
I want to remind everyone about the Youth Sponsorship Program too. If you know of a youth BJJ competitor that can’t afford the entry fee they
can send us a letter telling us why they want to compete. We still have a few spots open, and letters can be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks again to our sponsors who have helped us provide some awesome prizes for our competitors! We will have cash prizes for open weight division champs, Fuji Sekai gis to give away, and our 6′ tall Champions Cup for the team with the most points at the end of the day. We don’t charge a spectator fee so tell your friends and family to come support you!
I also want to thank all of the competitors who have supported us this time around. We have had a ton of people volunteering to hand out flyers and help spread the word to other schools. Without your support we wouldn’t have the excitement level that makes our tournaments first class, and your feedback helps us keep our tournaments focused on what’s best for the competitors. And yes, I am bringing back the gong. KUMITE!
See you on the mats,
Rob Luhrs & Joshua Barnes
