100 CHAMPIONSHIP BELTS AWARDED
NAGA is the only grappling tournament in the world to award 100 CHAMPIONSHIP BELTS to all its Children, Teen, Adult, Masters, Directors and Executive Expert Division Winners.
SAMURAI SWORDS TO KIDS & TEEN WINNERS
NAGA will be awarding custom engraved SAMURAI SWORDS to all Children & Teen 1st place winners! Octagon medals will be awarded to all 2nd & 3rd place winners along with Adults who place 1st through 3rd. All competitors who win a medal will have the opportunity to obtain a samurai sword in addition to their medal at the NAGA T-shirt booth for a nominal fee. All children/teens will take home a medal even if they do not place 1st through 3rd for having the courage to compete.
FREE FLORIDA STATE CHAMPION GI PATCH
All Children, Teens & Adults who place 1st in any of our Gi Divisions (White Belt through Black Belt) will receive a NAGA Florida Champion Gi patch. These patches are not sold, only earned by the best Gi competitors!
CONSOLATION RING OPEN ALL DAY – NO EXTRA FEE
To give our adult competitors more opportunities to compete, NAGA has created a Consolation Ring. This ring will run both No-Gi and Gi matches. The concept of the ring is to give those who did not place 1st, 2nd or 3rd in their division another opportunity to compete. Once your division is over, bring your registration card to the consolation ring and our ring coordinator will match you up with others that are similar in weight and age. This will be a great way for competitors to get extra matches and earn valuable competition experience. Kids and Teens, you will be taken care of at your ring.
GOOD LUCK ATT MIRAMAR!!!
