IBJJF Chicago Summer Open Championship 2011 Results

August 26th, 2011


Villa Park, Illinois (IL) -- The International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation brought the Chicago Summer Open Championship to the Odeum in Villa Park this past Sunday.  As come to be expected, Carlson Gracie Team put the credentials of it's BJJ training on display by earning an array of wins and tournament accolades!

Building off the success of it's previous tournaments in the area, the IBJJF's registration process quickly hit full capacity and locked out many potential competitors who were slow to register.  As a result, the number of jiu-jitsu team members that Carlson Gracie Team was able to send out onto the mats was noticeably smaller than in tournaments past.  Regardless, the talent of those who did make it into the tournament were still strong enough to come away with an overall second place team win!
