Grapple Girls Women’s Open Grappling Tournament 2009

Taking place in Toronto, Ontario on August 22nd is the first ever – but surely not the last – ‘Grapple Girls Women’s Open Grappling Tournament 2009.’ 

The event aims to raise the profile of women in sport; more specifically, female Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) artists and Grapplers.

Formed by female grapplers from various Toronto-based BJJ and Grappling Arts Academies, the Tournament committee plans to run a grappling-centric event that is both professional and politic-free  ~ sorry guys 🙁

The organizers are “committed to making this not only the best-run women’s grappling event, but the best-run grappling event anywhere.”

The event will feature some of the biggest names in women’s Grappling and BJJ in North America and, in keeping with the spirit of the event, proceeds generated will go to non-profit women’s organizations.
