On Saturday 24th June, the first ADCC Melbourne Open was held at John Donehue Jiu Jitsu & MMA in Notting Hill, Melbourne. It was a great day with some outstanding matches and great sportsmanship shown by everyone on the day.

It marked the first time an Intermediate division had been held in this country and the first time there has been an ADCC event since 2011 with plans in the future to add the beginner category also that way more competitors can be involved in this great submission grappling competition and rule set without thinking they need to be a World Champion to compete in an official ADCC event.

We look forward to growing these tournaments as time goes with the goal of bringing the trials back to Australia so competitors don’t need to travel to Europe in an attempt to qualify.

We’d like to thank all our Referees, Judges and staff who were amazing on the day and helped everything run smoothly. Thanks to all the competitors who supported the event with some flying in from Sydney and New Zealand.

Also, a big thanks to our sponsors, MMA Fight Store Melbourne and MA1 for amazing prize packs worth about $3000 on the day. Newline for their apparel for the judges, referees and staff and LT Collins café for their amazing coffee and food available for everyone there.
