SMALL EVENT AT BIG EVENT PRICES. Too much money for such a small event, start off cheaper and build your event, than once your event starts to taking off you can increase your prices. The first event was ok, but not worth the money. I hope event make some changes, good to have a local event. Phone Post

Marcus "buchecha" Almeida took the absolute cash prize...(no surprise there) There were some awesome matches. It was a beautiful day right on the water. Small local tournament but its growing. The promoter, Pat Ryan did a great job and his goal is to improve each time, which is important. Some of the bigger companies don’t try to make strides in that direction. He doesn’t really care about making $...he’s jus really into BJJ and wants to be part of something unique and cool.
The next one will probably be around September due to the need for more moderate temps than we have in the summer out here! It’s important to have local tournaments and give guys an option. I have heard from several black belts that they’ll be coming to the next one and bringing their schools. A few other people have expressed their interest in more outdoor venues like this one. We have the weather year round…why stuff ourselves in nasty high school gyms all the time when we can be on the water!!!!

He’s also planning an MMA show in the future…THAT could be cool as hell…Sun going down on the intracoastal….boats going by. Should be fun.
