NAGA SELECTS CORAL SPRINGS FOR IT'S US NATIONAL EVENT:
The North American Grappling Association (NAGA) is America's largest mixed grappling tournament circuit with over 11,500 competitors worldwide. On Saturday, February 7th, 2004 the NAGA returns to Florida for its 2nd Annual NAGA US National Grappling Championship No-Gi & Gi tournament. Come as an individual or as a team to compete.
The Coral Springs Gymnasium is twice the size of a normal College Gym. This huge arena is not connected to any school or other facility; it is an enormous venue which has plenty of stadium seating for friends and family to watch you compete. We will run 8 Rings at once to ensure an efficient tournament. We will also have plenty of warm-up mats for competitors.
OVER 100 GI & NO-GI DIVISIONS THE SAME DAY:
One of the unique advantages of NAGA events is the ability for fighters to compete in both Gi & No-Gi competition the same day for no extra cost. We will be holding all 100 divisions (Gi & No Gi) on Saturday so you can save some cash, only $65 to fight in both Gi & No Gi competition. Pre-Reg fighters will receive a Free Competition T-shirt. Kids & Teens will be broken up by age, weight and skill level the day of the event to ensure fair competition (This is to avoid 8 year old competitors fighting 12 year old competitors). Awards for 1st through 4th place in all divisions! 40 Kids and Teen Divisions in all!
