I don't care what anyone says - having people on MMA.tv know about your grappling event makes a huge difference.

It's cool reading about how everyone starts calling each other, sending email, getting a team together, etc. when they find out a tourney is near.

For more info and pics go to WWW.GRAPPLER.US or BJJNEWS.COM

The Carolina Cup:"TAP FACTOR" 5 continued its run as a tournament for all forms of grappling for the Southeast area. This one was ran with the help of our local Host Abe Stem (McCullough Submission Fighting) and our Head Ref Andrew Smith (Richmond BJJ).

I run a monthly event called "TAP FACTOR" in which guys can compete in as many divisions as they want for the same price: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (with the gi), submission grappling (no-gi), folkstyle wrestling, greco-roman wrestling, and "Police Cuff-N-Stuff" (submission grappling with the objective of controlling your opponent apprehension-style, as opposed to submitting). Thank you to all those competitors who showed up and showed heart. I will see all of you again at "TAP FACTOR" 6 on Jan. 29, 2005 in Lincolnton, NC.

I knew that was coming up and I forgot oh well next time.

congradulations Anthony, It sounds like the tourny is growing at a great rate. I will make it for a few of them in 2005. I competed in three of them in 2004 and had a great time. Thanks for all of the time and effort to put on these great shows. I will see you at the Budweiser Cup. I heard you are training some with Joe but I havent seen you at the academy yet. Regards,

Chris Toher

The Southeast is a great region for helping BJJ/submission grappling grow.  It's great to see locally run events keep going.
