Im trying to register now. Master 2 UHW Black.
Old guys holding down!!!!
Thanks man. Ive been fucked up for like a year now but Im feeling good enough to get back at it... hopefully! LOL
ok just got registered. If it didnt take 5 tries it just wouldnt be the IBJJF.
GayGuardMooseSaucy - Not old but I'm 50/50 on signing up. Got 1 person between Gi and Nogi so far, it just ends up being such an expensive weekend.I hear ya. I try to make Chicago bc I can't afford to get to the others... Right now I have no one in my division. But the absolute has several!
Cory Dee - I'm planning to be there, I think we have 6 or 8 of us coming down from Canada. I am technically a master 1, but I'll be doing adult.I did the spring earlier this year, it got to 90% capacity in Gi but didn't close. Nogi got to 50% but never gets remotely close to closing. It's looking pretty thin right now in both
Does this tournament normally fill up? The original plan was to do the NY Open, but got shut out from registration.
Do any of you guys regularly go to the Chicago Open and have an idea of the schedule? I'm coming from out of town with some students and I'm trying to get our travel in order.
I heard that Masters Gi divisions may be on Sunday? Has anyone experienced this or have you seen the Masters Gi compete on Saturday?
Ryan Prouty - Looks like Lots of gimme medals lol. Too bad it's not real gold, might get our $115 back.I was gonna sign up in the same division but I broke my toe yesterday. I'm kinda bummed because I wanted to compete semi locally with some guys I haven't rolled with to start preparing for the masters worlds in November. We have a pretty big local tournament up here in Michigan on September 13th the Michigan Open if you and your team want to make a trip where everyone will get some matches it's a good one to plan for and very well run and organized. My toe will be fine by then even if its not 100% I will play. There are a couple other black belts around our age division and weight up here that will probably compete as well. It's double elimination too. Check out the website www.usabjjtournaments.com
I am going from nogi master 1 middle weight to NoGi Adult Heavyweight division so I can get some matches and a solid open class
Ryan Prouty - Only gi divisions I've seen bumped to Sunday are white belts. They will have a schedule up a few days before the tourney. I doubt anyone will get bumped as light as it is...White belt didn't get bumped. They're always on Sunday with Nogi
Yea, kinda hoping more people sign up or I may just switch to Adult in the gi so I can get a crack at Vitor Oliviera, guy is an absolute monster.
GayGuardMooseSaucy - Megaton is signed up for adult feather, interested to see him in the absoluteMegaton lineage here (through McVicker). The team is pretty excited he is coming to Chicago!
