Australian BJJ fans rejoice! After almost a three year hiatus, we here at Just Jits are stoked to see the return of BOA Super 8 for its 4th Edition to be held in Melbourne on June 24.
For those that don’t know, BOA Super 8 is a professional jiu-jitsu event that features a knockout style 8 man tournament with the winner taking home a hefty cash prize. Previous winners include Bruno Alves, Marcos Souza and Leon Amancio. Spread amongst the main event are several male and female superfights that keep the crowds entertained.
Previous editions of BOA have all seen the 8 man tournament take place in the gi. The 4th Edition however marks BOA’s first venture into the no-gi arena. The tournament will feature an ADCC ruleset with the champion taking home a massive $20,000.
Another change to this edition of BOA is the addition of a BJJ gi and no-gi tournament that will take place in the lead up to the evening’s show (open to all).
BOA have assembled an all-star cast of grapplers for their eight man tournament including the likes of Gilbert Burns, Michael Perez, DJ Jackson, James Brasco and Australia’s own, Craig Jones.
With the most stacked list of grapplers ever assembled for a tournament on Australian soil, this event is one not to be missed! Don’t stress if you can’t make it to the event, all the action can be viewed on a professional live stream which will be announced closer to the date.
