IBJJF Upcoming Tournaments: The Calendar’s More Full Than You May Expect

I was pleasantly surprised when I started marking tournament dates on my work desk calendar (I’m not the only one that does this, right?) and realized I had to dig all the way into October to mark all the potential tournaments I want to compete in for 2015.

I think it’s great that the IBJJF is getting all their dates together now. While it’s no secret the organization has issues, it really is one of the bigger tournament circuits around, and to have the dates for tournaments set so early will presumably make it better for competitors to plan out the competitions they would like to attend over the year, and smaller tournament circuits that don’t want to compete for registrations by holding a tournament on the same day as a local open.

And on a personal note, it makes it so much easier to plan what vacation days I need to take off throughout the year. Score!

Based on the current calendar, are their any tournaments you are already planning to attend? Let me know- otherwise, have a great day everyone!

Field Trip!

Good morning everyone- today’s post is a short one; I’m headed on a trip outside of the office (field trip! Yay!) courtesy of one of my teammates.

In the meantime, so now black belts have to get background checks if they wish to participate in the IBJJF? My only question is just how frequently these checks need to be done. Not that I mind the check itself, I just think it’s a waste of time to spend $20 every year to confirm that I live a boring, law-abiding life.

Anyone know how often these background checks have to be done? Let me know- otherwise, have a great day!
