    Inspired by the thread on the Gracie Invitationals, I thought I’d do a little PR for the BJJ scene here in Europe.

    13-14th May (this sat/sun) there will be a BJJ event in Helsinborg, Sweden.

    I counted this morning and there were 33 women signed up, which I think is a record around here, so that is just awesome! At the SW events I’ve fought at, I’ve been lucky if there have been 5 girls signed up. But I hope that this upward trend continues, and I’m really looking forward to Saturday. 😀

    There’s also the Scandinavian Open on October 21/22 in Sweden.

    Hopefully be a couple more in the UK as well.

    Damn wish I’d known sooner about Helsinborg, I probably would have gone to that one.

    Is it an annual competition? I’ll try and go next year if it is.

    Results from Kaisho:

    I got bronze in my weight (-69), so not too many complaints here. 🙂

    Yes, our organisation (Brasa) hosts Scandinavian Open in October, and this year I think they’ll be over 500 participants. And there is Swedish Open (no-gi) in December.

    Lisa – yea, Kaisho is a yearly event that takes place in May. Considering how many people showed up this year, I think it’ll definately be worth it next year, too. There were the usual organisational issues with waiting time etc (my first fight was at 10.30am and my last absolute fight at 6.50pm), but overall it was ok.
