Saturday the 14th of June was a big day for Ippon Gym BJJ members and they made us proud!
The competition had 400 competitors making it the biggest Bournemouth Open to date.
Organisers used a digital scoring system for the first time. This year also saw the introduction of Who's Afraid Of MAT5? Matt 5 was an extra matted area running alongside our main competition, free to nyone who signed up to Bournemouth Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Open. The rules were simple: the fights werent matched, competitors had to go in pairs and wait to be called in. All fights regardless of colour belt fought under IBJJF BLUE belt rules. The idea of introducing MAT5?! was to give competitors a better experience and opportunity to have extra fights and it turnout out to be great fun.
