Massachusetts – 2016

August 27th, 2016 | St. John's Prep

Our fourth annual Massachusetts Tap Cancer Out BJJ Open attracted 350 grapplers from all across New England and beyond welcoming more competitors and raising more money than any of our prior summer tournaments. Phil Chason from The Academy earned the top fundraising award with $3,178 raised. New England United went back-to-back, earning their second consecutive Top Fundraising Team award with $7,615 raised. Mack Fieldhouse from Zenith BJJ took home our Michael Corb Top Children’s Fundraising award with $1,413 raised.

120 fundraisers (and 1,460 generous door-donors) helped raise $75,000+ in donations. In total, the tournament raised more than $85,000!

And alhough we don’t officially have team performance awards, congrats to New England United for earning the most Kids points and Abusado Team for the most Adults points. New England United earned the most combined points (adults and kids). 

Special thanks to our sponsors for helping us put on such a great event, including Inverted Gear, Chaos Kimonos, ECMMA Fight ShopAK KimonosMission Athlete Care, Defense Soap, Suppino’s Restaurant, BJJ Tees, and Eat Walloons.

Registration opened in mid-August for our first ever Philadelphia BJJ Open on Saturday, October 22, 2016 at United Sports in Downingtown, PA!!
