Grappler, your bizarre excuses for not competing and total lack of planning are hereby thwarted. Behold, the relatively accurate and not surprisingly spotty 2011 IBJJF Tournament Schedule. Nothing says international governing body like mispelling September.
There aren't too many confirmed dates beyond April, so I'm not sure how helpful this will be. But, what can you expect from a pre-holiday post?
If you're American, then tomorrow is Thanksgiving and that means you'll likely be busy explaining to your extended family that BJJ doesn't really employ the ever-effective karate chop. Have fun with that. For the rest you non-American grapplers, tomorrow is just Thursday.
