REASONS TO COMPETE
We want you to have the best tournament experience we can offer. Over the next several weeks we will share why YOU should come out and compete. Granted not everything will apply to you, but some of these might make apply to a friend or teammate who is on the fence about competing.
Reason #1 is for the White Belts out there. It can be scary as a beginner. Class itself can be a challenge for some. The thought of competing at a larger tournament can be down right terrifying, but it can also be incredibly rewarding and a fantastic way to test your skills in a safe environment.
At the MBS we spilt White Belts into two divisions, under 9 months and over 9 months. We know for some the journey from White Belt to Blue Belt can take some time and lets face it, putting up a 3 months White Belt vs a 16 month White Belt isn’t much of a challenge. By splitting up the experience levels we can offer a fair challenge for those in each division. If you are under 9 months but would like more of a challenge then feel free to go into the Intermediate Division.
To make it even better for the White Belt Novice (under 9 months) we are offering Double Elimination in the Gi. We know that first match can really get the adrenaline going and it doesn’t alway work out the way you want. Don’t worry. If you lose your first match you can still go on to fight for 3rd place.
