Sierra Smackdown “Sport Jujitsu & Grappling” Tournament

We went to the Sierra Smackdown Tournament this last weekend, and it was a lot of fun.  The tournament was a Karate Tournament in Reno, NV at the Peppermill Hotel and Casino.  There were five rings for sparring and kata.  The karate sparring portion is called “kumite.”  The memorized forms that sometimes appear like a Martial Arts Dance are called “kata.”

Professor LL Cary and Champion Martial Arts were in charge of the Sport Jujitsu and Grappling portions of the tournament.  The tournament promoter thought that there would not be very many people competing in the Sport Jujitsu or Grappling divisions.  He made a huge mistake in thinking this way.  It turns out that over half of the total participants in the tournament did either Sport Jujitsu, Grappling or both.  Needless to say, the competition took a lot longer than expected.  We were so successful that they almost ran out of trophies!

Speaking of trophies, CONGRATULATIONS ABRI!  11 year old Abri C. from our South Reno Champion Martial Arts location took home 2 trophies.  She got a First Place in Karate Kumite fighting against Black Belts.  She also got Second Place in Sport Jujitsu.  Awesome Job Abri!  I will add a picture of her with her trophies as soon as her parents send me one.

UPDATE:  Professor Cary will be holding his very own Kumite, Kata, Sport Jujitsu and Grappling Tournament on November 14th!  Please clear your schedule and come out to support us.
