Amsterdam Open 2016

20/11/2016 - Sporthal Karelrijk, Amstelveen

Today a big part of the Gracie Barra Groningen Jiu Jitsu team together with coach Ezra took the journey to Amsterdam. Everybody was motivated to show the ability to compete and gain experience. The Amsterdam Open began 11 o’clock, so the team arrived half an hour earlier for the first weigh ins. Everybody made weight so the competition could go on.

Flevo Open 2016

On Saturday, the 17th of September six of us competed at the Flevo Open. The tournament was held in the huge Topsporthal in Almere and with nearly 400 competitors this was one of the biggest tournament in The Netherlands. A great way to kick off the new competition season!

King of the Beach

What an experience! The King of the Beach tournament was something like most of us had never seen before – an outdoor No Gi ONLY tournament right on the edge of a genuine manmade Dutch beach. The King of the Beach tournament came with it’s own unique set of rules whereby a ‘Catch’ (submission attempt) was worth 2 points and all footlocks, including heelhooks, were permitted (in the elite divisions). This changed the dynamic of the fights completely, and saw many many more being won by submission than usual.

IBJJF British Nationals

On the 24th of June, Ying, Guven and Ezra made the long trip across to London, England. Departing from what appeared at first to be the world’s smallest International Airport, Ezra was well prepared for the strict carry on luggage rules – Guven not so much, but managed to get away with bringing his giant backpack on board by relying on his Kurdish roots. Ying surprised everyone by turning up at the last minute as a spur of the moment decision!

Female Fighter Cup

Finally! Another tournament! This time, the 11th of June, even two tournaments! The Female Fighter Cup in Belgium and Rotterdam BJJ Open. At first, we wanted to go to Rotterdam with the whole group. Unfortunately, there had not been enough subscriptions in the brackets of the girls. So they decided to go to Belgium in the end as a last minute decision.
