Last Sunday, Extreme MMA Byron Bay hosted a new Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Grappling Tournament, The Byron Bay Open.

The event was a huge success with almost all of the schools and their competitors from the region attending – over 300 competitors and spectators descended on the Byron Regional Sport and Cultural Complex for the tournament.

Winning teams on the day were Extreme Nova União (Byron Bay Extreme), the Spartans, and Team Axis. Divisions fought on the day were everything from white to black belt with Gi and no-Gi events, in both men’s and women’s, and from weight ranges from 64 to 97 kilos and the open division. The winner in the Black Belt No-Gi Open Class was Daniel Almeida from Extreme Nova União.

For the first time out, the tournament was a great success with the vision for many more. ‘We hope to run these events at least twice a year,’ said Byron Bay Extreme’s Ben Pietzsch. ‘It was great to see schools represented from as far as Yamba to the Gold Coast.’

A full list of the results can be found in our sports results, club news and draws under the orange tab on the sport page.
