Sao Paulo hosts Equipes
Championships to take place on 11/3 and 4

Whoever is in Sao Paulo on the 3rd and 4th of November will be treated to great Jiu-Jitsu action at the Mauro Pinheiro gymnasium, in Ibirapuera, where the 2007 Brazilian Team Championship will take place. Some of the biggest gi-wearing names in the world will be in action, defending the colors of their respective academies in disputes that many consider more exciting than the World Championship itself.

Unlike what happened in the Worlds, this time registration forms should be sent in by representatives of the academies between the 23rd and 26th of October and addressed to Av. Comte. Júlio de Moura 276, Barra da Tijuca, Cep: 22620-010, in Rio de Janeiro. Sign-up costs R$ 55 per athlete, plus one kilogram of non-perishable food (salt and sugar will not be accepted).

The athletes not traveling from Rio de Janeiro will have to make payment for registering by bank deposit in the CBJJ’s account, and send by SEDEX the original proof of deposit along with the sign-up form properly filled out and keep a copy of the proof, they will be needed by the athletes.


Running in parallel to the Brazilian Team Championship, also to take place in the gymnasium of the Ibirapuera park, will be the 2007 Brazilian Beginners Championship. Sign up for this competition will be open from the 23rd to 26th of October. Click here to find out more.
