Jiu Jitsu Tournament Info for Competitors and Spectators:

Tournament Location – Georgia International Convention Center. 2000 Convention Center Concourse, Atlanta, GA 30337.  Once you get down there, you can follow the signs.

Tournament Times – Our first competitor competes at 9:15a and our last group starts at 6:15p.  A more detailed schedule will come out Fri and I’ll post it on our FB page.

Carpooling/Travel – It’s typically better to carpool to events like this. So, we will be meeting at Gentry’s MMA and Fitness at 7:45a and will need to leave at 8:00 sharp. There are many many events going on this weekend downtown such as DragonCon, 2 College Football Games, the Braves and Pride so, driving through the city will be insane.  I advise you to take 285 E around the city.

Post Competition Celebration – There’s nothing better than a big fat juicy burger after competing.  Burger 21 in Buford is our spot.  Be there around 8p for the festivities.

Additional Competitor Info – If you are competing, be sure to be in the bull pen 15 min prior to your division beginning.  Also, you get a free T-Shirt.  The T-shirt table is usually in the back behind the mats to the left.
