Competition Jiu Jitsu OceansideHello Team!

Excel Jiu Jitsu will be having it’s first In-House tournament, for Team Members only. The tournament will be run by Head Professor Michio Grubbs. Operations will be run by Kidd Grubbs.

This Tournament is designed for practice; for students to practice competing in a competitive environment. This tourney will help to introduce newer students to competition and for the experienced competitor, it is another chance to get a match in.

Please check with the Front Desk for more information.

I have been selected to Ref the matches. Here is a quick rundown for the competition:

This will be an in house tournament. Competitors are not allowed from others schools. This
will be a great tournament especially for those that are still learning the sport or for those who
have not competed much.

Jiu Jitsu Education

It is our contention to teach students that you will learn so much, not only about The Art of Jiu Jitsu, but you will learn more about yourself. Through winning or losing, you will become a better Martial Artist through this experience.

Excel Jiu Jitsu Oceanside Vista CA medals, awardsTraining with a purpose can often accelerate your understanding of the sport. You may be
training a specific position, sweep, for points or the submission. You may see that your training
changes once you have signed up for a tournament. Hopefully you start to find what works for
you under varying conditions.

It will be your choice to play your game to secure position for
points or to apply a submission.

Points will be given according to the rules not on effort alone.

Ok, go HAVE FUN!
