FINAL COMPETITORS LIST: 2009 FBT THAILAND BJJ/GRAPPLING OPEN

Here it is, the final registry for the 2009 FBT Thailand BJJ/Grappling Open this weekend in Bangkok, 09.19-20.2009. We've decided not to split the brackets due to logistical reasons.

Looking forward to an action packed weekend. This Friday at the weigh-ins, we will be making available a pamphlet with the 2-day schedule, bus schedule, directions and contact info. Also, if you're sticking around past Sunday be sure to catch up with us at the after party at Woodstock Bar on Thonglor Soi 13. Bangkok BJJ will be hosting an open-mat Monday night following the tournament, free for all visitors.

"Due to logistical reasons" meaning what?

Gully said...

wow, lots of competitors! gonna be a great weekend.

Luke, some of the Philippine blue belts have moved up in weight: you may need to add to the 90kg division list (to avoid any weigh-in confusions). good luck to all!

thanks!

teemu said...

Huge tournament, nice. :)
Just wondering how many competitors will be next year...

LUKE said...

In order for us to finish the day in a reasonable amount of time, we cannot afford to split the divisions.

While collectively there are plenty of competitors, the weight difference is not distributed evenly to split and would create lopsided brackets.

We are weighing the white-belts Friday night in order to get a head start and begin the tournament on time come Saturday morning. In the meantime, we will be working on confirming all higher-belts weights and finalizing the brackets on site.

Wishing all the competitors the best of luck.

I removed my entry from the google doc some time ago since i cant make it. Perhaps I should have emailed you directly.

since we weight in on friday night, do we need to re-weight in on sunday for no gi?

hoin

LUKE said...

Damnit Sinclair, now you messed things all up! Sorry to hear you won't be competing this weekend.

Yes, there will be separate weigh-ins for gi and no-gi.
