Due to the location, we are expecting a big turn out from many of the TOP BJJ & Submission Grappling schools in the region.

Also, for the first time we are giving the first 75 Pre-Registered competitors a FREE

Help support the OGC

Our most recent competition drew well over 225 competitors & 500 spectators from all over the region. Based on the continuous growth of our events, future events will likely continue to draw competitors from all over the country! That said we are always looking to partner our events with local companies that could benefit from a partnership with the OGC.
We have flexible sponsorship packages that we are certain can work for you & your company. We currently use a wide spread marketing approach that reaches out to schools & competitors from all over the Midwest & Southeast. We also reach out to multiple BJJ/MMA websites, Internet blogs, and media sites. 
 If you are interested in supporting this event, please let me know so that we can discuss how to move forward with this opportunity.
 The deadline for having your logo placed on the postcards & other mailed marketing pieces is December 3rd. However, we will still secure sponsors after December 3rd, but your logo placement will be limited to mass emails & our website.
Thanks so much for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you very soon.

If you have questions about registration, rules, weight classes, or anything else concerning our upcoming event…please stop by our website:
Our next event is only 7 weeks away!!!  Come and be a part of the fastest growing BJJ & Submission grappling competition in the region!
