in Bangkok Thailand

The 3rd SouthEast Asian Grappling Games in Bangkok, Thailand is to take place October 20-21, 2007.

The First SEA Grappling Games in Bangkok in November 2005 was a great success. The 2nd installment of the SouthEast Asian Grappling Games on March 17 and 18, 2007 was even larger, better organized and saw much higher level of competition with Brown Belt and Black Belt divisions introduced in the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Tournament and the Elite Division added to the Submission Grappling Tournament. There were 5 teams from different parts of Thailand present at the event which clearly shows the growth of the BJJ and Submission Grappling in the Kingdom. Competitors and teams from Japan, Hong-Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Indonesia, Philippines, USA were represented. Right now preparation is in progress for the 3rd SouthEast Asian Grappling Games in October 20-21, 2007 in Bangkok Thailand.

The grappling arts in general and the sports of the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Submission Grappling in particular are gaining huge popularity in the world.
