Torneo De Mayo Event Results


Evanston, Illinois ( IL ) —On Sunday August 22nd, 2010 the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation (IBJJF) held arguably the most prestigious tournament to ever be conducted in the Chicagoland area.  The IBJJF, a major governing body for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) and organizer of several of the biggest tournaments in the world including the Mundials, Pan American, and European Championships, presented the region the Chicago International Open Championships.

The Carlson Gracie Team set their sites on this tournament which was coveted by both schools regionally and nationally.  At the end of the tournament, Carlson Gracie Team stood tall with a second place finish beating all regional schools and finishing second to only Loyd Irvin's school from the East Coast!

Carlson Gracie Team Coach and Black Belt Jason Sullins remarked on his team's successful performance, 'We have an incredible work ethic here. The guys work hard, we train hard, and we don't take a whole lot of time off. We have very committed students and competitors here and that makes a difference.'

Already dominating the regional tournaments, this was just the type of recognition the team was looking for.  With enormous momentum built through several tournaments this year we can only expect more success to come!
