The Rickson Gracie Cup is officially scheduled to make its Scotland debut, and the Jiu-Jitsu Times has received all the details you need to know if you’re hoping to attend.
The Cup will take place at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow, Scotland on July 7 and 8 this year and will follow an itinerary similar to that of the inaugural Cup that took place in Albany, NY last year.
Saturday, July 7 will feature the kids’ tournament, a “Jiu-Jitsu for Life” workshop led by Steve Maxwell, and a three-hour seminar taught by Rickson Gracie himself. Sunday, July 8 will see the adult competition, plus a self-defense demonstration by Pedro Sauer and Luis Heredia. Rickson will also be hosting a free educational clinic for all the competitors.
Scott McVeigh, the president of the Jiu-Jitsu Federation of Scotland, called the event “historic,” citing the Gracie family’s ancestral ties to Scotland. He also hinted that more exciting details about the Cup may soon be available, and if so, the Jiu-Jitsu Times will provide updates as they’re given to us.
