2008 PHILIPPINES BJJ & NO-GI INTERNATIONAL

I have the results from this past weekend with a quick commentary from Stephen Kamphuis, the organizer of the tournament. -Luke


I would like to thank all the Local and International Teams who supported
this year event.

A special mention should go to the Singapore contingent who brought in a
large Junior Team of competitors as young as 7 years old. Beside some great individual results the Singapore team also won the Team throphy against a team of three children ages 7-9 from the Philippines. It was a great experience for the kids and we hope this will lead to future events between the two countries.

There where some great fights during the comp with some divisions topping 25 competitors and the Absolute White belt division coming in at the cut off mark with 32 competitors.

The standard is improving at each comp and the teams are growing. This year we had several special awards for each day:
Agip Most technical Fighter
Agip Most promising Junior ( BJJ Comp Only )
Agip Best match of the day ( Basic and White belt)
Agip best match of the day ( Blue and Intermediate )

T-Shirts donated by Crossface where given to the No Gi Absolute winners.
We would like to thank our sponsars :
Pocari and Alaska gave out free samples during the event:
Pepsi , MTG, Pocara, Alaska Yoghurt , Top Ten , AGIP, Daedo, Activ, Dax

The event was co presented by SM Mall of Asia , Sports Central and KMA Fitness and Martial Arts.

Sincerely,
Stephen Kamphuis

Nice number of competitors in BJJ and no-gi. This will help in getting more people interested in BJJ.

Kudos to the organisers and competitors!

It's enlightening to see that the arts scene in singapore is improving. We were so wayback 5 years ago. Right now, there just seems to be a huge number of singapore tourist attractions. Both the locals and tourists are all benefiting

Within the year, the level of competitors and events have increased so much and with the community in mind. It's great to hear and see this exchange going on and I'm sure it will only get better. Let's be sure to maintain what is so great about our community and keep things free of politics and positive. Congratulations to all that competed. -Luke

Thanks for the results Luke! Great Job. But just a little correction:

Basic 67.5kg-73.5kg

B - Enoch Herbert BJJ Borneo (not Synergy JJ Indonesia). That's our boy there. :)

Thanks,

Sam
