Long Beach Spring Open - New 2012 Jiu Jitsu Venue for IBJJF

Tomorrow will be IBJJF's first ever, Long Beach Spring Jiu Jitsu Open. Perhaps to accommodate for the swarms of Jiu Jitsu schools and students that are popping up in the state of California, especially after the impressive number of competitors that showed up to this year's 2012 Pan Am Jiu Jitsu Championship in Santa Ana, California.

The Long Beach Spring BJJ Open will take place on Saturday, May 12th, at the Long Beach Convention Center. We can wonder how many competitors will use this tournament as a warm-up for the 2012 Mundials coming up in just a few weeks, or whether this event serves more for those that are looking for smaller competition prior to the summer. We will take a look at the lists and see if there are any competitors doing both tournaments and report back to our readers. Are you competing in both the World Jiu Jitsu Tournament AND the Long Beach Spring Open?
