It shouldn't be a surprise to you that the IBJJF Worlds are happening right now. If it is, then embrace the shame and do something about it. Just make it a priority and, please, no excuses.
It's simple. If you live in or around Southern California, stop what you are doing and drive directly to Long Beach and watch the damned thing live and in-person. If you live anywhere else or for some other, odd reason can't be there, then do the next best ting and pay $19.95 (for Sat and Sun) to watch the live stream via Budovideos. Don't complain about the money. Just do it. And, no, we don't get paid by Budo. We just like to watch epic, world class BJJ and they are doing right (plus, they're the only ones doing it). For the last Pan JJ tournament, the live stream on Budovidoes was pretty excellent, particularly because you can now choose which mat to watch at any given time. So, there. If you need more convincing , watch the fancy hype video.
