10p NorCal White Belt Tournament at 10th Planet Sacramento

Today our white belts stepped out of their comfort zone and competed at 10th Planet Sacramento. 10p Sac did a great job running the event, each participant got at least 2 matches and got appropriate opponents.

In-house competitions serve as a stepping stone for those who aspire to compete at a higher level. They provide valuable experience competing with similarly skilled individuals, allowing you to refine your competition strategy and build confidence before venturing into external tournaments.

We had participants from 10th Planet Sacramento, Stockton, Walnut Creek, Daly City, Oakland and San Mateo. Not only is it a great way to get competition experience but also a great way to meet your Jiu Jitsu...
