On September 4th & 5th, the North American Grappling Association (NAGA) returned to the Land of Lincoln for its annual Midwest Grappling Championship at the Odeum Expo Center in Villa Park, Illinois.
The tournament was the second held in the windy city after NAGA visited Chicago earlier this year at the Chicago Championship in April, and faced a dilemma with having too small of a venue to accommodate the large influx of competitors. With both the kids and adults grappling on the same day, it resulted in disaster, with many adults not competing until early evening until late into the night.

Outside of experience in Brazailian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ), diet can separate the good from the great in jiu jitsu.The Gracie diet divides foods up into four main groups and then dictates which groups for jiu jitsu practicioners that can be combined with other groups. There are many smaller details too, like only one hot meal a day, try to use only fresh produce, steer clear of pork, etc.
