All NAGA events are part of the nationwide ranking system entitled RANKED. Our goal is to determine who the best grapplers in the country are for various age, gender, and skill levels. This tournament will be nationally ranked so do not miss your opportunity to gain points towards a true national title. More details can be found at

NAGA works diligently to prevent “sandbagging”, or the practice of fighting down skill levels to ensure one takes home an award. NAGA has been working with RANKED to track all fighters and ranked grappling events to produce true “national standings.” A by-product of these standings is our knowledge of who has competed and at which level. Front door personnel will use RANKED data to determine whether or not individuals who have fought in past events belong in a higher skill level (i.e. placed 1st at a prior NAGA event).

Texto-Junior Samurai

O Ceará foi muito bem representado no último domingo no Mundial Sem Kimono 2010, realizado na Califórnia, Estado Unidos. Na quarta edição do torneio da IBJJF, os cascas-grossas alencarinos brilharam e conquistaram uma medalha de ouro e outra de prata em duelos contra a maiores feras da arte suave.

Marco de Lima (SAS), que fez uma luta épica contra Danilo Dragon, em 1999 no Clube dos Diários, e esta radicado á dez anos nos Estados Unidos, não deu chances para Paulo Giacomo na semi-final da categoria pesado, finalizando o atleta de Giovanni Reis. Na final Marcão como é mais conhecido, venceu por pontos o americano Joshua Noblin.

Atleta da American Top Team, Manoel Soares depois de passar por dois oponentes só foi superado na final, diante de Crosley Gracie. Manoel começou bem, mas em uma entrada errada de queda, Crossley reverteu marcando dois pontos e em seguida passou a guarda. O ex-lutador do Bellator espernou e voltou em pé, com um minuto para o final do combate, Manoel foi pro tudo ou nada, entrou numa queda, bem defendida pelo Gracie, na tentativa de escapar, o pupilo de Marcus Aurelio vacilou no pescoço tomando uma guilhotina indefensável.
