Weigh-in Information

Competitors can weigh-in Friday at 8:15P-9:15P OR Saturday from 8A-10A at the tournament location.  You can do either or and do not have to do both.

Competitors do NOT have to weigh-in with their gi on

Itinerary and Parking

We will start with the No Gi Advanced Money divisions.  However, we will start with all gi competitions following that, and will allow the advanced competitors time to rest.

Kids/teen gi will start immediately following the cash divisions and we will run them on their own mats.  The adults and youth will typically start with the highest belt and we will work down from there.

This same system will apply for the no-gi competitors as well.

The first matches should start at 11A and will follow the rules meeting at 1030A.

Parking

There is some construction in the parking lot.  However, there is parking to the left of the construction and behind the building.

Sports Fest 2016

On Saturday, August 20th, 2016 Charleston, West Virginia will, once again, host the official state Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Submission Wrestling State Championships as part of the "West Virginia Games." The WV Games is a huge event that takes place on Magic Island, which is located on the Kanawha River in the capital of West Virginia and offers a scenic backdrop to a flurry of athletic competitions and events.  This is a family friendly event and we encourage all of our competitors to bring their friends and families so they can enjoy all of the other events and activities during the tournament.

Besides the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Submission Wrestling State Championships, the WV Games will also feature several family friendly sporting events from all around the state and country.   With the addition of our numerous vendors and activities, we feel that this is an event that everyone should try and make part of their schedule because it is very rare that you can keep the entire family entertained while waiting for your chance to hit the mats.

Sports Fest is a professional volleyball tournament and a professional jet-ski event that will be featured on national television.  This will just add to the excitement bring bigger and better things to the event as a whole! For more information on sports fest click: http://www.evptour.com/

As always, we want all of our competitors to have as much fun as possible, so we offer a well organized tournament that is fair for all and offers a ton of matches at a low price.  In fact, each competitor has the chance to compete a minimum of six times, if they compete in their respective divisions in both the gi and no gi tournaments as well as the absolute divisions.  Keep an eye out for continued updates.
