Saturday • September 10 The North American Grappling Association offers adult, youth, gi and no gi divisions. Check the rules and register online at Nagafighter.com. The event will again be hosted by Everett Community College Student Fitness Center 2206 Tower St. Everett, WA. Be sure to let Professor Houston know in advance if you are competing. We will be doing special BJJ tournament preparations to help get you ready!
Saturday Nov. 12 (Adults) & Sunday Nov. 13 (Youth) This is the largest BJJ tournament in the Pacific NW! Adults and youth can compete in both gi and no gi divisions. Unlike many tournaments, you are guaranteed a minimum of two matches. Register online, get directions and find out the rules (they’re different for every tournament!) at LeapLLC.com.
If you’re interested in competing in or watching the Pacific Northwest’s largest Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournament, it’s coming up soon! The Revolution BJJ Tournament is held three times a year in Tacoma, WA. The venue is Pacific Lutheran University, Olson Auditorium. Online registration is now open and will close July 13th.
As usual, there are gi and no gi divisions for both children and adults, men and women. Visit the event website, leapllc.com, to also see the weight classes, approximate schedule and tournament rules.
If you are thinking of competing, it’s especially important to check the rules since every tournament is different. You don’t want to get go for a knee bar that got you the win at NAGA, but will get you disqualified at The Revolution! You should also make sure your gi is ok for competition. For example, if your sleeves are too short, it’s time to buy your new gi top NOW. If you holes in the knees of your gi pants, it’s time to buy new gi pants NOW.
If this is your first tournament, please be sure to check with your coaches to see if it’s a good idea for you to compete. They can also help you get ready in the weeks and days before the competition. CageworX will probably have a group carpooling from the gym. Check with Cody for details.

On January 10, 2015, the CageworX Youth Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu team participated in the very first ‘Chess on the Mat’ youth invitational BJJ tournament in Tacoma, WA. And let me tell you, our kids looked great, dominating the competition! We took four competitors: John (age 11) and Anna DeLacruz (age 6), Chase Cobb (age 11) and Thane Frandsen (age 8). Anna took second place in her division and Thane took first in his very first competition. Chase took first place in his very first competition and John also took first in his division. John gamely took a last-minute invitation to participate for a championship. For that, he won a GIANT title belt that is about as big as he is! Their families and the CageworX coaching staff couldn’t have been more proud of them! BIG congratulations to all the kids, thanks for the support given by their families and teammates in the CageworX Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Kids Classes. Special thanks to BJJ of Tacoma for creating a great opportunity for the kids to compete!
