If any grapplers have any concerns, we're here to tell you - the BJJ scene is more alive than ever and it's f*cking awesome. Yeah. It's so awesome, we need to curse (or cuss. Whatever. Your parents aren't here).
Five Grappling is that new tournament promotion you've been hearing about and for good reason. They are putting on kickass tournaments. This weekend, the live streamed, with excellent quality, their California Invitational, which featured a 5 man round robin no-gi, pro-level tournament. Keenan Cornelius competed among several top notch guys. This is great stuff, and we encourage you to watch the action.
Grapplers, these are exciting times. BJJ technique continues to evolve as does the scene that supports it. In addition to Five Grappling, Dream Jiu Jitsu held a sub-only tournament in Southern California this past weekend as well. Their amazing stat of 50 bouts and 50 submissions says it all. We'll be featuring some of the matches from that tournament as well.
