PRIZE MONEY: 2009 FBT THAILAND BJJ/GRAPPLING OPEN

The BJJAT (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Association of Thailand) team has gone over the budget several times and we can now commit to the following amounts for the black-belt & no-gi elite division winnings.

WINNER BLACK-BELT DIVISION (GI): $700 USD cash-prize

WINNER NO-GI ELITE DIVISION: $300 USD cash prize

Please note that we will continue to work towards increasing the prizes but it requires fundraising along with support from our sponsors. The BJJAT was formed to create opportunities for those looking to get involved in the growth of BJJ/Grappling in Thailand. All members are active volunteers and all profits are returned to the BJJAT to help fund the following event. We do this on our own time with no financial compensation. We are all competitors and have come together in hopes of raising the standards for tournaments and help elevate the level of competition in Southeast Asia.

Too bad the Nogi division wasn't 500

Pajama prejudice ;)

*Any cash prize for the brown belt division?

We're definitely working on making things sweeter for all competitors. At this moment, this is what we can confirm to give and as we do more fundraisers we can hopefully expand things for brown-belts as well.

Ray, will you be competing in both gi and no-gi?

I usually only do the Nogi, but was thinking I'd throw on the Gi for this event.

I made the deal with my class @ the white belt tournament that if they did the Gi...I'd do the Gi.

Would be great to have you compete in both categories. Especially since you've competed abroad in the gi and not just exclusively no-gi.
