Today was the first annual Bay Area Brazilian Jui-Jitsu championships held in Alameda, CA. I was there for the Kids (ages 5-15) White to Green belt Division taking pictures and a little video. Being that it was the first one held there was a little organization issues but nothing major. The event was heldin a middle school gym and the house was packed wall to wall. I’d bet that next year they will have it in a larger facility judging by the success they had today.
The kids competing were all good sports and the judges and coaches were also really helpful. As you come to expect in competitions with young kids there is always that loud over aggressive parent that yells a bit too much. Other then that all the kids seem to enjoy the event and I’m always amazed at the level of still these young boys and girls have in Jui-Jitsu.
About the Author (Author Profile)My brain child is MMAValor, something I had wanted to do for a long time and finally it’s here. Been an MMA fan since TUF season one (play catch up all the time) and the obsession started to grow like a weed and as the sport grows so does the love for the sport. I’m a jack of all trades, a very organized person that rides an emotional roller coaster daily.
