    On July 26th a No-GI tournament will be held in (Easton) CA right outside of Fresno. I
    believe it is only 25$ to compete, pretty fair priced. I'll get the link here shortly

    elcliffo, the event is now listed on icompete.org it is ( Matdaddy.com classic)....the link is
    iCompete - Your Complete Listing Of Martial Art, MMA, And Grappling Tournaments, Seminars And Events

    That would be great if some folks from Visalia would come represent. The central valley is in need of some events:D....I am tuning up my folkstyle backround(takedowns/cardio) then I will be in the market for a sub-grappling gym. My boys are pretty well trained at royce gracie jiu-jitsu of Fresno. So maybe that will be my gym of choice. Where do you fight out of??? I hear there is good MMA events over in Visalia. Any questions hit me up or email [email protected].....

    thanks for posting it, I will try to make it to the tournament if all possible. I am 26, is there going to be many others there my age or is it mostly younger guys? What classifies you as a "novice" and are "submission grappling" events the same rules as a BJJ competition?

    I train with a group here in Visalia that works under Marcelo Cavalacanti who is part of the Tinguinha association (we don't have an official school, just use a room at a local gym). Most every group in Visalia is associated with Tinguinha (Central Valley Martial Arts, Luis Gonzales, Samurai Dojo). The highest ranked person at my school is a few striped Blue Belt, so we are all just beginners.

    I believe they will use the rules adapted by FILA for sub-grappling. As for comp, I don't know the age majority. If you got a group of guys who roll this is a great way to get some mat time. Novice is 2yrs or less. They realize most people can't train 5 times a week. This tourney is really good for beginners to get out there and have fun for a cheap price. I would encourage you to come if you can.
