Rorion Gracie, the man who brought us the U.F.C., is now working on a BIG Jiu-Jitsu tournament to launch his new project. The International Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Federation will host its first ever tournament on February 1 & 2, 2002, at the Cal State Domingues Hills, in So. California.

The Tournament is going to be open to all participants and will feature a new set of rules, that as Rorion puts it: 'Will take the boredom out of the Jiu-Jitsu matches! Rorion(shown r.with Helio, Chuck Norris and Ralek) consulted with many of the top Black Belt instructors around and has come up with a set of rules whose main objective is to encourage going for it! The word is 'Submit your opponent!'

The event will have 3 weight categories with white and Blue Belts competing together, while the other belt will compete in their own division. Winners of the white/blue, purple and brown divisions will receive an ALL EXPENSE PAID trip to Brazil to train and stay at Grandmaster Helio Gracie's home!

There will also be a Black Belt Pro-Division with two weight categories: Under 175 and over 175 lbs. with over $2,000.00 in prize money for EACH weight! More news as they are released!
