2016 Philadelphia BJJ Open Wrapup

103 Fundraisers – 900 Donors – $62,000+ Raised!!!!

On October 22nd, 2016, we traveled to United Sports in Downingtown, PA, for our first Philadelphia BJJ Open in support of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. The PA/NJ/MD area welcomed us with open arms and we put on one of our most successful events ever.

Nearly 400 grapplers (our second-most ever) joined us to raise more than $62,000. Justin Mazzi from TAC Team BJJ earned the top fundraising award with $2,870 raised. TAC Team BJJ also took home the Top Fundraising Team award with $9,594 raised. Tommy Boyce from MPR Endurance took home our Michael Corb Top Children’s Fundraising award with $1,001 raised.

We also hosted our first ever black belt superfight featuring Jared Weiner (TAC Team BJJ/BJJ United) vs. Ed Apicella (American Top Team/KORE BJJ). Click here to watch the fight!

Special thanks to our sponsors for helping us put on such a great event, including Inverted Gear, Chaos KimonosAK KimonosMission Athlete Care, Defense Soap and BJJ Tees.
