Older and Tougher than Ever? Enter our Master's Division

This year we will hold a Master's Division for athletes ages 35 and older on both the Gi and No-Gi days. Bring a head of grey hair (or no hair) and your valid ID card with your date of birth on it to be able to enter. This will be an "Absolute" weight class so big and small will be battling it out. We will combine White and Blue Belts into one division and Purple-Brown-Black in a second Master's division. This serious-but-friendly division is always a crowd pleaser. Of course, you can always mix it up with the young toughs in the Adult category as well.

A white/blue Master's division for under 70kg would be nice (and one for over 70kg)...



Maybe next year?

Good idea. We will have a look at how many guys there are that would fit this category.

There are 26 competitors in the Masters division now. That would be something like 4-5 fights to get to the finals. That is very tiring when added to the competitors other fights in the Gi/No Gi divisions (especially for old men). Maybe in addition to splitting it above and below 70kg you can also have separate white and blue divisions for Masters?
