SAMURAI SWORDS TO CHILDREN & TEEN WINNERS
NAGA will be awarding custom engraved SAMURAI SWORDS to all Children & Teen 1st place winners! Octagon medals will be awarded to all Adult divisions winners. All Adult, Kids & Teens 2nd & 3rd place winners take home octagon medals. Many adult competitors have asked to replace swords with gold medals. Adults who place 1st will have the option to obtain samurai swords at the NAGA T-shirt Booth (for a nominal fee).
6 SPECTACULAR CHAMPIONSHIP CUP TEAM AWARDS
All 6 of our top teams (Adult Gi, No-Gi & Children 17 yrs. & under) will receive a custom made CHAMPIONSHIP TEAM CUP. Don’t miss this opportunity to showcase the talent that your academy possesses.
DOUBLE THE TEEN DIVISIONS - NEW AGE GROUPS
With the large number of teenagers competing at NAGA events, we have decided to double the number of teen divisions. We will now have separate age group divisions for teens 14 & 15 year olds, and 16 & 17 year olds. We will be using the same weight classes as in the past. Children 13 years and under will also be broken down by weight and age.
NEW ADULT ABSOLUTE NO-GI DIVISIONS
Many NAGA No-gi competitors have asked us to allow them to compete in multiple skill levels in order to get more opportunities to roll the day of the competition. In order to facilitate their request we have added Novice, Beginner and Intermediate Absolute No-Gi Divisions. These No-Gi Divisions will begin once all the regular No-Gi divisions have ended so No-gi grapplers will not miss their second chance to compete. 1st through 3rd place winners take home octagon medals. The winner of the Advanced Absolute will take home a championship belt
SAVE MONEY, GET YOUR GRAPPLING GEAR AT THE EVENT
NAGA will be bringing a truckload of grappling gear (board shorts, rash guards, t-shirts, hats, hoodies, etc.) in children and adults sizes, for males and females. Check out the huge selection of gear and apparel at the NAGA Apparel Booth.
FREE TICKETS TO SPORTFIGHT X FOR NO-GI ABSOLUTE WINNERS
The promoters of Sportfight X will be giving two free tickets for That night’s event to each of the winners of the Novice, Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced No-Gi Absolute winners. Click the logo below for more information on the show.
NATIONALLY RANKED EVENT
All NAGA events are part of the nationwide ranking system entitled RANKED. Our goal is to determine who the best grapplers in the country are for various age, gender, and skill levels. This tournament will be nationally ranked so do not miss your opportunity to gain points towards a true national title. More details can be found at www.nationallyranked.com.
NAGA works diligently to prevent "sandbagging", or the practice of fighting down skill levels to ensure one takes home an award. 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. 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)
