2019 Schedule is Here!

We just got the list out and it looks good.

We are fortunate enough to have 8 rings for BJJ and 2 for Muay Thai

We are scheduled to start at 10 and have the last divisions at 3pm




Things to know when you get there:

We are not charging an entrance fee this year which means no wristbands either

Be ready (changed) 45 minutes before your division is scheduled.  In the event we are ahead of time we will start the divisions (ONLY IF EVERYONE IS THERE)

Check in at the bullpen when your division is called.  Be sure to have all your gear and a water bottle.

You will be brought to the first available ring.  Last year we had scheduled rings and that changed throughout the day as some divisions were faster than others.

After you are done your division the medals will be presented in the ring.  We are trying to run No Gi right after Gi.  So please get changed and listen for your next division to be called.

Once done, enjoy the rest of the day and cheer on your friends.



Make sure there are no tears, holes or pockets in your gea and no stains or blood.

BJJ must not have rashguards for 13 years old and up (Males only)

Gi’s must not be too short, we will be checking

Muay Thai gear includes Headgear, mouthguard, gloves, shinpads, groin cup, shirt and shorts.

There is a 2 lb weight allowance for difference in scales.  IF you are over 2 lbs we will not be able to change your divisions.

Arguing with other competitors, coaches, referees, volunteers etc. will NOT be tolerated.  If you have a challenge please come talk to me specifically (Mike Yackulic).  I will listen to your concerns and try my best to come up with a fair resolution.  If you are unable to control yourself then you will be asked to leave.

We try our best to make everyone have a great day but the reality is some people will have a bad experience.  Please come see me and I will try to make it right for you.

Paypal is Working… and new Medals!

We had a little issue with Paypal but it is all sorted out now.  That said we are nearing our limit of 300 competitors (we are sitting around 250 right now) and will be stopping registration Friday night.



Inspired by the sidewalks of Rio de Janerio (along the beaches), we were looking for a classic look and they turned out great.  Heavy too.




We look forward to seeing you all soon.  If you haven’t registered here is the link

Schedule for the Day

Sorry for such a late time getting this out to you.  A had a hard time with the programmer and the times were drastically bloated.

That said these times are pretty tight and require everyone to be at the venue on time.  It does not account to injuries, people in two divisions at the same time (but they are scheduled to not conflict) and other mishaps that slow the day down but they also assume each match goes the distance which happens in the 5,6,7 yr olds and Muay Thai divisions and about 3/4 of the rest.  So it should balance out.

I know it is confusing to look at but the benefit is you will have a good idea what time and ring you are on.  I hope it works out or that last 8 hours were a waste.

Hope everyone has a great day

Rough draft schedule

Working on fixing the schedule now. It looks like what I posted last night will work.

10:45am 9, 10 Gi

1pm Teens and Adults (start with Exec and Women, then Purple, Blue, White and Novice)
Muay Thai Adults starting at 11am with 6year old kids starting around 12:30pm
This is of course an estimate. I should have some better times by 9pm
Please be ready 45 min before your event is scheduled to weigh in.
For those new to the process:
Register when you come in, ideally an hour before your event
When you hear your division called go to the Bullpen
Get your weight an uniform checked
wait in bullpen to get a ring coordinator to take you to your ring
Do your division
receive medals in the ring
Go get ready for next event and repeat the process.
Hope everyone is ready to go tomorrow.

I have seen a lot as a ref that has made me cringe or feel bad when one kids hurts another kid and it’s “fine” under the rules.  I don’t believe this is necessary or good at encouraging kids to use proper Jiu Jitsu techniques.

So starting at this Mind Body Soul we are going to be making a rule that there is no direct pressure allowed on the wind pipe for children under 16. (exceptions will likely be made for Orange Belts and higher).  These include but are not limited too:

  • Amassa Pao Choke when Standing in the Guard (2 Knees on floor will be acceptable)
  • Forearm on the throat from Mount, Side Mount or standing in the Guard
  • Forearm on the throat while choking from Rear Mount with or without the Gi
  • Head scissor regardless of pressure on the windpipe
  • Same applies for fists, wrists, shins etc on the throat.

We have made a short video going over some of the chokes in question which you can see here:

If you have any questions, please email me at myackulic@arashido.com .  It is much better to clear this up before hand instead of seeing if you can get away with it.


Lots of warnings will be made at this weekends event.  I am sure with some this will be an unpopular decision but I do believe this will make for a more enjoyable tournament as well as encourage kids to learn how to do a better choke.

Looking forward to seeing you all this weekend.
