  1. Caleb, keep an eye on this. Hopefully it will materialize into something good. It looks like a new team is forming. BJJ Force is the name. Right now the competitor list shows only one person under this name but I have heard rumors that a few schools are coming together to make this team. I am sure that if it shows well through the Pan AMs it will be a name to be reckoned with in the future.

  2. Its all a tough call with the team championships. I’ve been really impressed with check mat, and im anxious to see what comes out of the Former Brasa team camp. I think Alliance takes it though.

  3. If Alliance shows up with the talent they have been producing over the past few years at these major tournaments, I don’t even think Gracie Barra is going to be able to touch them.
