It’s Jiu-Jitsu time in London

The Jiu-Jitsu World Championship, the biggest event of the IBJJF season, is now in the past. However, anyone thinking the governing body’s international calendar is at a standstill couldn’t be more wrong. The events known as Open Championships are picking up steam and won’t let the competitive flame go out in those who like donning the gi for some healthy competition.

The next one coming up, for example, is the Rio International Open from July 21 to 24 in Brazil, an event running concurrently to the traditional International Masters and Seniors.

Outside Brazil and the United States Open tournaments are gaining momentum too. On October 1 and 2, for instance, the London International Open is coming up, as announced by IBJJF kingpin Marcelo Siriema.

The most important city in England, a major cosmopolitan metropolis brimming with culture and among the biggest financial centers on the planet, London is a hotbed for sport too, whether for the upcoming 2012 Olympic Games or now for Jiu-Jitsu.

Some of top teams will be there, like our GMAs Gracie Barra London Bridge, led by black belt Eduardo Carriello, and Roger Gracie Academy, run by three-time absolute world champion Roger.

The venue for the London International Open will be the Crystal Palace National Sports Centre. Get up to date on al the IBJJF events by clicking here.

Passou o Mundial de Jiu-Jitsu, maior competição da temporada IBJJF. No entanto, engana-se quem pensa que o calendário internacional da entidade acabou. Os chamados eventos Open seguem a todo vapor e não deixam apagar a chama competitiva de quem gosta de vestir o kimono.

O próximo, por exemplo, é o Rio International Open, nos dias 21,22, 23 e 24 de julho, no Brasil, evento que acontece paralelamente ao charmoso Internacional de Masters e Seniors.

E, fora do Brasil e Estados Unidos, os eventos Open seguem ganhando espaço. Em outubro, nos dias 1 e 2, vem com tudo o London International Open, como informa o dirigente Marcelo Siriema.

Capital e cidade mais importante da Inglaterra, uma cidade global, que ferve a cultura e centro financeiro entre os mais importantes do planeta, Londres também respira o esporte, seja por causa da próxima edição dos Jogos Olímpicos, em 2012, e agora com o Jiu-Jitsu.

Por lá estão algumas grandes equipes como as nossas GMAs Gracie Barra London Bridge, comandada pelo faixa-preta Eduardo Carriello, e a Roger Gracie Academy, do tricampeão mundial absoluto Roger.

As disputas do London International Open vão ser no Crystal Palace National Sports
Centre. Fique por dentro dos eventos da IBJJF clicando aqui.
