We're now just two days away from the Ascension Jiu-Jitsu Championship. The EVENT SCHEDULE is up; please go through the important information for competitors and arrive at least one hour prior to the start of your division.
We will be posting the division brackets tomorrow. There are no more changes permitted to entries. Tonight is your last opportunity to check the Competitors' List to ensure that your name has been entered in the corresponding division(s) before we post the brackets tomorrow.
We hope you are as excited as we are to bring in the new year with a dynamite weekend of matches and a fresh new start for all of our competitors. You will be hearing about last year's competitors that achieved the top rankings due to their performance at OJA-sanctioned events in 2012. The Ascension Tournament will be your first opportunity to gain points towards ranking among the top athletes in Ontario for 2013. We have a great turnout this year and most divisions are budding with talent. We will be in for some memorable matches this weekend as individuals and teams rally for the championship. Once again, we thank you sincerely for believing in our event and sharing its philosophy of unity and camaraderie among competitors in the midst of fierce competition. Thank you for setting an example of how true martial artists conduct themselves on the mat and in real life; it's more than just the Gold.
Enjoy every second of your performance on the mats this weekend--fear cannot hold you down; your dedication to your training will lift you through the competition. Best of luck from my fellow Professors to you, our students. This weekend is yours.

Competitors and coaches,
Please be advised that tonight at 11:59EST is the final deadline for any changes to registrations. After this time, brackets will be confirmed and posted here. If you have already registered and your name does not appear in the correct division(s) listing, please contact us immediately.
We are also aware that there are some divisions with only one competitor entered. We will be contacting you directly to advise whether we can accommodate your registration or if we will be giving you a refund. We hope that the latter is not the case, but unfortunately these scenarios are beyond our control. Nonetheless, we highly value your support and will make every effort to accommodate your registration.
Apart from releasing the official event schedule, we will also be providing you with further instructions for check-in, rule elaborations and general event procedures to ensure the weekend runs smoothly. Please stay connected here and don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. Don't forget to check your registration!
Thank you for supporting the ASCENSION JIU-JITSU CHAMPIONSHIP, we look forward to seeing you this weekend!!!
