Hawkesbury is hosting a Jiu-Jitsu tournament
A massive Jiu-Jitsu tournament is making its debut in Hawkesbury!
Martin Nguyen, a Montreal resident, is the founder of Submission Arts United (SAU), an organization of competitive grappling, including Jiu-Jitsu and Submission Grappling. This grappling tournament organization, located in Montreal and founded in 2014, coordinates Jiu-Jitsu and grappling tournaments throughout Quebec and Ontario. Hawkesbury is its next stop.
The Hawkesbury tournament will be held on Saturday, January 26 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Robert Hartley Sports Complex. This tournament marks SAU’s 16th event and will be bringing in competitors from throughout the region, from as far away as Quebec City to Toronto, as well as competitors from the United States and the Maritimes.
Approximately 500 competitors, both youth and adults alike, are expected at the Hawkesbury tournament. In order to thank Hawkesbury for welcoming its competition, SAU will be donating a sum of the profits from the competition to the Hawkesbury and District General Hospital Foundation.
