So for the first post of Jiu Jitsu Pictures Blog I decided that would be about the best competition I’ve been in a long time :
World’s best grapplers.One mat. Sixteen men. One winner. U$ 10,000 cash prize. That sounded so good to me so I headed to NYC to cover the event. Sick line-up : Celso Vinicius, Ryan Hall, Justin Rader, Renan Borges, Samuel Braga, Bruno Malfacine, Wilson Reis among others.
The location couldn’t be better , right across from the Madison Square Garden and limited sitting. One might think that U$ 150,00 is expensive for a ticket BUT first row in a tournament with high level grapplers AND all you can eat food ( fruit, cheese,charcuterie, dessert ) is a no brainer. You get to watch live , very close to those guys. I had a hard time photographing and trying to pay attention at the same time and in the end I’m glad I was there to witnessed an incredible display of skills.
Thanks Rob Constance and crew ! Awesome event !
I’ll definitely go back.
