This has been a long time coming, and now is finally here. I am happy to announce the IBJJF will be coming to Toronto to do their first Toronto Open. To be held on Saturday,August 4th at the very spacious Etobicoke Olympium in the west end of Toronto, the venue was home to the 2008 Olympic Trials for wrestling.

This is a great opportunity for our Jiu Jitsu community to get some international experience with out paying for plane fare and hotel to California. The IBJJF ,right in our back yard .As we witnessed in Montreal, competitors from the USA will be pushing to compete at this tournament, you will not want to miss the Toronto Open.

More info like Hotels and registration, referee clinic etc. will be available soon, but you can get updates on the IBJJF site.

Once again, the Toronto Open will take place on August 4th,

DONT MISS THIS TOURNAMENT !!!!

Will this be a standard IBJJF registration process, or will dues to some other organization be required as well?

As far as I know your school needs to be IBJJF member and if you are brown or black belt you need to be IBJJF member as well.

This is an IBJJF tournament, no need to be OJA member, but some one needs to confirm if clubs and brown and black belts must be registered.

GringoBR - This is an IBJJF tournament, no need to be OJA member...


So for years we've been told that in order to legally compete in grappling or BJJ in this province, that the event and the competitor MUST be sanctioned by the OJA or the OGA.

So why is this different? NAGA was forced to play under these rules. So was Grapplers Quest.

I am not sure who told you that Cory. But this is not true. Tournaments do not need to be an OJA or OGA sanctioned to happen.

Who forced NAGA to go with the OGA? I never heard that. The same for Grapplers Quest, I think is a personal option from the organizer to go with the organization they want or alone. What the organization has to offer to you and to the sport.

As someone who competed many times ajax to hamilton i never understood why i had to register to some organization when i competed in tournaments. As a competitor what are they doing for me?

BJJ gyms are not cheap. Tournaments are not cheap, then u get popped for another 25$. Where is this money going ?

/rant

Im glad we are getting more and more tournaments in ontario i look forward to this one. Phone Post

I don't believe the IBJJF gives anything away besides event tshirts and medals at any of their tournaments.

Just a reminder the registration for the Toronto ends on Friday, July 27. ( Today at midnight )

unlike the OJA Tournaments ,we are use to them closing on Monday at midnight, be sure to register today, as Monday will be too late.
