    Hi guys,



    We are hosting the New Orleans Cup tournament Sat, June 14 at Newman School in Uptown New Orleans. We are very excited as this is the first BJJ tournament in New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina. Please spread the word and forward this to any other schools that may be interested. The registration packet is available at nolacup

    I'll be there, but I won't be competing since I'm dealing with a broken big toe right now. My son is going to be doing Gi and No-Gi. It'll be his first time in juveniles, moving up from the kids division.

    I know what you mean. The formation of the LBJJF has been awesome for the state. It used to be that we had to drive to Texas for a good-sized tourny, but now we've got tournaments across Louisiana back-to-back all summer long.

    Really? That sucks. I competed in the last Gladiators comp in May 07 and it was a really solid tourney.

    That's cool. It'll suck if it doesn't happen, but the idea of GA moving to a better location is great news.

    Check out the LBJJF website. They have the calendar for all the scheduled tournaments in LA through the rest of 2008.
