This is an announcement of the II RGC Wroclaw BJJ Meeting.
This tournament will be held in our gym in Wroclaw, on the Saturday, 17th of October. It will be limited to a maximum of 120 participants.
This is a meeting, not an official tournament, it will be open for invited groups and all Rio Grappling Clubs, allowing us to prepare better for bigger tournaments.
Clubs interested in participate, please contact us in advance informing the approximate number of competitors.
The comp will be run in our gym, there are two official wrestling matted areas, but not much space available to public, so we are not encouraging spectators.
Entries are limited and we will have only a few divisions like on our first meeting. Remember that this will be a friendly comp, so the idea is to gain experience and prepare for bigger ones.

The tournament is disputed in single elimination brackets, being the 3rd places those who lost to the finalists in the semi-finals.
A submission ends the fight, and is the clearest way to show the dominance. Other than that, a fighter can win his bout by disqualification or unconsciousness of his opponent (in this case, if the unconsciousness is due to a valid move as a choke or throw), points or aggressiveness.
Techniques allowed for all divisions: take downs, pins, sweeps, guard passes and all grappling moves applied with control. Submissions to wrists, shoulders, elbows and straight foot locks, and chokes;
Submissions NOT allowed: neck cranks, heel hooks, toe holds and knee bars, finger twists, biceps or calf compressions.
