Make an IBJJF New York Open for KIDS!
This petition had 626 supporters
Today is February 1, 2018 and I started this petition 2 years ago!! So much has changed in a matter of two years and the kids competition scene here in the NorthEast has expanded greatly. Below is my original post calling for a KIDS IBJJF NY OPEN; two years later, this call still has not been answered. We can change that and we must. Please read my original post and pass this along to as many people as you possibly can. Let's get to 500 signatures! We aren't far off from achieving that simple goal because of all of the beautiful and supportive people that have already spoken by signing this petition. Us kids are still and will always be the future of Jiu jitsu. Treat us right, IBJJF. Please.
ORIGINAL POST: Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is my passion and I know the BJJ kids community here on the NorthEast Coast feel the same. Unfortunately, we don't have all of the same opportunities that many of our brothers and sisters on the West Coast of the United States have where IBJJF tournaments are concerned. We don't share any of the NY OPENS with the adult competitors that we all look up to and whom train us to be warriors on the mat. I have traveled across the country to attend the KIDS PANS in Long Beach, California and the KIDS American Nationals in Las Vegas, Nevada and those experiences were amazing.. but it took a lot for my parents to get me there and unfortunately, I know so many talented Jiujitsu players that won't get to have those experiences. The Dedicated and hard working kids in my community who aren't able to travel across the country need an outlet to show the federation that the future here on the NorthEast is bright. This move would benefit so many including the IBJJF with swarms of new memberships. Please consider signing this petition, even if you don't have a child or student who competes. Sign it because you love Jiu-Jitsu or simply because it you want to see kids excel in what they love and honor. Sign it because your kid or student works hard and loves to train and compete. Sign it because you have an academy full of dedicated athletes that you work hard to teach. Sign it because you know that kids are the future of Jiu-Jitsu.
Please & Thank you, Oss
