European No-Gi Open 2012

EUROPEAN OPEN JIU-JITSU NO GI CHAMPIONSHIP

EUROPEAN OPEN JIU-JITSU NO GI CHAMPIONSHIP

The last October 21st. in the Crystal Palace in London took the European No-Gi Open. A good chance to watch very good grappling combats in London. For those who are not familiar with No-Gi, this is a sport that uses Brazilian JiuJitsu rules but with out the Gi. The Open was divided in categories in function of the weight and the experience based in the JiuJitsu belt. The combat starts with booth athletes stand up and the referee gives points in function of the executed technique (2:takedown,sweep or knee on the belly; 3: guard pass and 4: mount or back control) the combat stops after six minutes or if there’s a submission. Beter check this video posted by Sweepking  to have an idea.

Let me tell you that the day before the London International Open IBJJF Championship took place with very good results for the Roger Gracie Academy guys.

Congrats to all RGA competitors and also to Sagi,

Albert
