TTT for a new way of thinking about BJJ and the tournaments we compete in.

We have been getting more and more Americans and Ontario residents lately and would love to keep the increase going. It would be more than appreciated to see the Ontario and especially the Toronto area come out to these tournaments.

Splitting the gas money and hotel money amongst a few teammates really cancels out a lot of the expenses people believe there are in competing in Montreal. I've made the trip out to Ontario, especially Toronto a lot to compete and would love to see the support returned to Quebec's first tournament they started themselves.

Montreal Grappling just finished catching up with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt Fernando Zulick 'Gringo' who owns Action Reaction MMA in Toronto. He is also slated to fight Daniel Covel from Team Balance/Marcelo Garcia Academy in the Black Belt Gi Super Fight January 21st at the Montreal Grappling Grand Prix.

TTT. 9 days away!
