Jiu Jitsu’s Most Tenacious Talent Touch Down In New York

Returning to the Greenpoint Terminal Warehouse in Brooklyn, New York and live on FloGrappling, KASAI Pro 2 will showcase some of Jiu-Jitsu’s most decorated names, compelling matchups and a feature eight-man no-gi tournament at 185lbs (83.9kg) to crown KASAI’s inaugural World Middleweight Champion.

KASAI Pro 2 keeps the same tournament format that brought excitement and suspense to our original KASAI Pro event. Top Jiu-Jitsu performers from New York and around the world will compete in six-minute bouts across two round-robin brackets, with the winner of each bracket advancing to compete in a final championship bout. All competitive bouts will use the IBJJF points system, no advantages will be awarded and all submissions are legal.
