WOMEN IN BJJ ARTICLE:
I'm really kicking myself for not getting this one down when I should have. Not to say that I don't want to write on the subject but some new stuff is out there that I think you should definitely take time to listen to. The FIGHTWORKSPODCAST has done a two-part series on 'Women's Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu' with Emily Kwok, Felica Oh and Val Worthington sharing their thoughts on the subject.

2009 FBT THAILAND BJJ/GRAPPLING OPEN: MMA SMOKER MATCHES
Gabriel Huang of Zeal fight gear faced Tobia Seifert of the Enomotos fighting academy in Switzerland.
Tea Ferasse represented Shanghai BJJ academy in China, while Ricky Musgrave fought out of the Tiger Muay Thai training facility in Phuket Thailand.
Ngoo Ditty of Tiger Muay Thai rematches Boxer Rebellion fighter Xavier Mahdavian.
ZEAL FIGHT GEAR:
I wanted to take a moment and mention one of our sponsors that did not get the attention it deserved from the tournament last week. Zeal Fight Gear sponsored a number of prizes for our awards ceremony, most notable, the 'most technical fighter' award which was given to Makoto Ogasawara and Leandro Issa for the gi and no-gi respectively. You'll also notice that Gabriel Huang from Zeal Fight Gear participated in the first MMA smoker match. What you may not know is that Gabriel accepted a last minute change to his match from full contact to Pankration rules by request of his opponent/TMT.
