NATIONALLY RANKED EVENT 
NAGA East Coast Championship will be nationally Ranked!  Ranked is a submission grappling rating system where points are earned and accumulated towards a national grappling title.  More details can be found at www.nationallyranked.com.

SANDBAGGERS BEWARE
We work diligently to prevent "sandbagging", or the practice of fighting down skill levels to ensure one takes home an award.  The NAGA has been working with RANKED to track all fighters and ranked grappling events to produce true "national standings."  A by-product of these standings is our knowledge of who has competed, and at which level.  At the NAGA East Coast Championship, front door personnel will use RANKED data to determine whether or not individuals who have fought in past events belong in a higher skill level (i.e. placed 1st at a prior NAGA event for that skill level).  We feel very confident that sandbaggers will be forced to fight in their appropriate divisions.
