For Immediate Release
The Gracie US Nationals Return to
TheFitExpo™, January 19-20
At the Los Angeles Convention Center
(Los Angeles, Calif…November 29, 2012) Jiu-Jitsu and Grappling tournaments will be front and center as The Gracie US Nationals return for their sixth year to the West Coast’s largest fitness event, TheFitExpo Los Angeles, Saturday and Sunday, January 19-20, 2013 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, 1201 South Figueroa Street, West Halls A & B.
As always, Rose Gracie will work in conjunction with the TheFitExpo to create the ideal environment and venue for a top-notch competition. TheFitExpo is bringing industry leaders together for a weekend of Jiu-Jitsu, Mixed Martial Arts, fitness challenges and much more. On Saturday, January 19 at 12 noon, Rose Gracie will present their annual Achievement Award to the recipient who best represents the standards of the sport set forth by Grandmaster Helio Gracie.
“We’re honored to once again be working with Rose Gracie from the legendary Gracie family on hosting The Gracie US Nationals at our 10th Anniversary event,” said TheFitExpo Executive Director, Erin Ferries. “She always brings a classic competition that unites participants and attendees.”
In January 2012, Gracie made significant changes to the rules of both adult and children's competitions at The Gracie US Nationals, as her desire was to bring back the original Jiu-Jitsu that her grandfather, Grandmaster Helio Gracie, envisioned from the beginning. Gracie switched the point system to a submission-only event. This prevents several issues that were previously faced in competition and it gives the competitor 100% power over the outcome of the match. Also, in an effort to keep the sport pure, random testing of competitors for performance enhancing drugs will be done again this year.
This post is a bit of an experiment to see if there is interest out there for more like it. A lot of you will remember the World JJ Expo earlier this year for the match that didn't happen but I'd like to look at one of the ones that did. The match between Kron Gracie and Victor Estima was a back and forth battle that wasn't decided until very end. I had a request to map it out and below is the result. It's a little unwieldy but still interesting.
