US OPEN OF BJJToday, October 20th is the absolute last day to register for the U.S Open XIX!

Hard to believe it has been 19 years of the US Open!  Wow!  Such a great tournament I have many fond memories of competing there with Team Ralph Gracie and all my NorCal BJJ friends.

Here is a message from the event promoter Claudio Franca
