THE 9th ANNUAL
CHARLES GRACIE INVITATIONAL
JIU-JITSU TOURNAMENT 2016!
Saturday, November 12th!!!
It is time again to formally announce the Ninth Annual Charles Gracie Invitational Jiu-Jitsu Tournament has officially been scheduled! Our end of the year celebration will take place on Saturday, November 12, 2016, at Lathrop High School located at 647 Spartan Way, Lathrop, CA 95330 (10 minutes from Tracy). It is important for everyone to remember that this friendly tournament is more than a competition, it is an annual celebration of the continued growth of our Jiu-Jitsu family! Be sure to save this special date on your calendar and I look forward to your support in making this event a huge success!
The first and most important objective I have is that every single student in every affiliate academy, from the newest beginner to the most accomplished practitioner, be part of this special once a year celebration.
This will be another great opportunity for our entire Network (students, affiliated schools) to celebrate our year working and learning together. Last year the Tournament was a big success thanks to all of our instructors, our students and guest students from other academies who participated, and the volunteers who helped make it a success.
The date is certain and ALL the students from the Charles Gracie Network, and all the guest students from other academies should begin preparing for the competition. The competitive environment is not to take away from this most important aspect of the celebration.
It is with the above in consideration that I ask all of you to make every effort to participate or to have your children participate in this once a year celebration and gain this vital experience. Please join us for another unforgettable day with good friends, and family celebrating yet another great year of Jiu-Jitsu!
Competitors can register ON-LINE, by MAIL, or at each Charles Gracie Academy and Affiliated Academies IN PERSON! To register online click here. If the competitor sends their registration by mail, make sure it is POSTED no later than Monday, October 31, 2016.
The tournament will begin promptly at 9:00am with an opening ceremony, and the doors open at 8:00am for athletes and spectators.
I really hope to see all of you, your family, and your friends at the Tournament! Let’s get ready to rumble!
