We have seen such a tremendous growth from our first Marianas Open (2007) in both the number of competitors and spectators; as well as in the caliber of competitors entering the tournament. In 2015, the MARIANAS OPEN drew International attention to Guam, by offering a $10,000 cash prize to the winner of the Absolute Black Belt Division. This created a buzz in the BJJ Scene – piquing interest in some of the top names in the industry such as: Rhalan Gracie, Luiz Panza, Cristiano Kaminishi, Guam’s son- Bryant Pangelinan, and the 2015 and 2016 MARIANAS OPEN Champions: Keenan Cornelius and Felipe Peña, respectively. Our pride and mission for the MARIANAS OPEN, that has kept us going ten years strong, has been to bring best from around the world to Guam to compete on our shores and to promote the growth of BJJ in Guam. The MARIANAS OPEN + Copa de Marianas events allows our local competitors a chance to compete with some of the best competitors from around the world, promotes Guam as a viable destination for sports tourism + shows the world the exceptional talent we have right here. BIBA GUAM!
