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.
