The Association of Grappling Competitors will be holding our 2nd tournament of the year on June 2nd 2007. This event, entitled the 1st Annual David Li Memorial Tournament, will be held at Lincoln Sudbury High School in Sudbury Massachusetts. The event will feature of 45 kids, masters, teens, women, and men's amateur divisions.
We are particularly excited about this next show as we have upped our prize money to 3000.00. The professional divisions are a random draw open to anyone who feels they are at that level of competition. Both Gi and the No-Gi will have 1500 in prize money with a 1k, 300, and 200, split for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place fighters. These draws will be full feed-in which means that when you lose in the main draw you will be placed in the back-draw to compete for 3rd and 4th place for 200.00. This original system, used by no other Bjj company in the world, guarantees all competitors at least 2 top flight fights, both of which are for money. The idea is to get guys as many fights and as much money as possible. Our last event featured top level grapplers, like Chris Page, Rick Macauley, Tatu Escobar, Dan Simmler, and Many others, composing what many consider to be the deepest talent pool New England has seen in many yeas.
Registration is 65.00 day of with pre registers getting free lunch and a shirt. For team rates, complimentary housing and gas money, please contact the AGC at www.agctournaments.tv.
This event will go to our year long cash bonus champion's race points, with a portion of the proceeds going to the LaClair Family of Vermont, may their wife and mother rest in piece, and a portion going to the Positive Spin for ALS charity group. We offer by far the best facility of any local show, which now features showers, a fighters lounge, two full mat sized warm up areas, and up to 12 rings if needed. We look forward to seeing you there and to showing you the difference between a company for grapplers, and a company that isn't.
