On Saturday, December 9, Jiu Jitsu’s Fiercest Warriors Descend On New York

KASAI Pro will present Jiu-Jitsu’s most decorated names, compelling matchups and a feature eight-man no-gi tournament at 155lbs (70.3kg) to crown KASAI’s inaugural World Lightweight Champion.

As part of an exciting tournament format, top Jiu-Jitsu performers from New York and around the world will compete in multiple six-minute bouts across two round-robin brackets. All competitive bouts will use the IBJJF points system, but no advantages will be awarded and all submissions will be legal. The winners of each bracket will advance to meet in a final championship bout.

Bouts will be judged using the IBJJF scoring system, minus advantages. ADCC submissions are legal.
