The nice thing about being in So Cal is that there are tournaments almost every weekend. Gokor Chivichyan & Gene LeBell have been teaching their grappling & MMA system for a LONG time in LA. Gokor started up a tournament series a few years back and the next one is coming right up!
This unique tournament features:
-Judo (and the flyer says "pants grip is ok!" - Looks like the 2014 IJF rules won't be enforced here!)
-Nogi Grappling (Heel hook & knee reap all you want!)
The Hayastan Grappling Challenge (HGC) rules are rather unique, so if you plan to compete be sure to show up early and learn the rules!
Oh, and here's the best part, check out these sweet hand made medals! Photo courtesy of Slick Rick.
Here's the flyer for the event
