On November 18th, 2017, Marquette University BJJ Club (MUBJJC) will be hosting a morning of adults Jiu Jitsu “scrimmages” followed by a live-broadcast, competitive, BJJ Micro Tournament for Adults (White Belt - Brown Belt) later in the afternoon. The purpose of this event is to bring awareness to the benefits of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, as well as fundraise for the MUBJJC. White and brown belts from around the Midwest will have the opportunity to showcase their skills on a global stage as each of their matches are filmed and broadcasted by the Jiu Jitsu media company, BJJ 4 Change.
On November 18th, 2017, the Marquette University BJJ Club (MUBJJC) will be hosting live BJJ Micro Tournament for Adults that will be filmed live and broadcast by BJJ 4 Change. The event will take place at the Marquette University Helfaer Tennis & Rec Center located at 525 N 16th St., Milwaukee, WI 53233. Event details and participation information can be found at www.BJJToday.com.
Chris Martin, a Marquette Alumni and a partner of Nova Gyms Martial Arts & Fitness in Oak Creek, works with the MUBJJC to provide support, staffing and development for the club and is mentoring the club on how to put on a successful tournament.
“Jiu Jitsu Micro-Events, such as this, have been popping up lately throughout the Midwest and the next few months are sure to create a lot of buzz as this event will be broadcasted, professionally edited and shared for future use among many online media channels,” said Chris Martin. “The intention is to bring general awareness to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and to also create family friendly events that will continue to provide entertainment to our community.”
Part of the funds generated from the event will go to help the MUBJJC grow their club for years to come. Currently they are raising money to purchase more matts so more students can train as the club grows. The event will also be included in the documentary they are creating called, “My BJJ Club.”
The BJJ Micro Tournament is accepting sponsorship support for the event. Already many businesses such as Float Milwaukee, Fresh Fin Poke, and Grappling Beard & Body have signed on to advertise themselves at the event.
“I do not think companies can find a better value for their money through advertising, with the amount of impressions that companies will get from this event, the brand awareness from their logo on our banner in the gym for the next year, and the many more impressions from these matches as they are shared on the internet for years to come,” said Martin.
