As we approach October we're getting just a few weeks away from the 2010 FBT Thailand BJJ/Grappling Open!!! The new location at Lumpini Hall will truly make this event the best so far with 4x competition areas, bullpen, podium and merch-tables. Here's an update of what's going on and for those who have yet to sign up, do it now!
