The first QBJJC tournament for 2020 was held on the Gold Coast over the weekend at the Carrara Indoor Sports Stadium. The South East Queensland Championship is a one-star event so it serves as a good warm-up for the long season ahead.
A small CAZA team made the drive down to compete, with our Moffat Beach professor Andrew Bailey there to coach. While we love to see our team members win medals, it is even more satisfying to see them grow as a result of their competition experience.
These are excellent results and we are very proud of the way that all of our competitors rolled on the day.
The next QBJJC tournament will be held on the 22nd of February. However, being in Townsville, this is well beyond the travelling distance for our members. As a result, the next event that we will attend as a full team will be the Brisbane Championship on the 8th of March. This is the first three star tournament of the year.
The first tournament held here on the Sunshine Coast will be the Caloundra Open on the 5th of May. We will send a big team to this event so if you want to represent CAZA Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu this year, try to compete at this one.
If you have never competed before, be sure to talk to your coach before registering for a tournament. He will be able to advise you on your readiness and training preparation leading up to the event.
